On June 7, troopers from the Vermont State Williston barracks participated in the North Country Honor Flight program. The Honors Flight Network’s mission is to help all American veterans, willing and able, to travel to Washington, D.C. to visit their memorials free of charge to the veterans.
The group of 15 World War II veterans and their families left South Burlington and were escorted to the New York State line by members of the Vermont State Police. New York State Police then accompanied the group the remainder of the way to Albany Airport, where they boarded a plane to Washington, DC. Prior to departing from South Burlington, troopers had time to interact with veterans and their families.
