Editorial | WWII Veterans Sought for Next Honor Flight Myrtle Beach

Bert Cassels of Pawleys Island recalls that he did not know much about Honor Flight when he first learned of the program dedicated to taking World War II veterans to see their memorial on the National Mall in Washington. Cassels, a retired naval officer, knew plenty about the contributions of the 19 million men and women who served in various branches of the military, including the Merchant Marines; he learned about Honor Flight from a PBS program. “We owe them a lot,” Cassels says of all those who served in WWII.
