The Tuesday, November 1st meeting of American Legion Post 227 hosted Dr. Guy Boswell, his son Matt, and Roy Johnson, who went on "Honor Flights" to Washington D.C. this year.

Honor Flights take veterans to our nation's capital to tour the memorials for the branches of service and other national memorials.

While there they saw the WWII Memorial, Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, The Tomb of The Unknown Soldier, The Marine Memorial and many other sites.

While on the tour they were honored and treated with respect where ever they went.  

Dr. Boswell joined the United States Army Air Force in 1943 and was sent to India where he flew as aircrew taking supplies over the Himalayas to China.

Roy Johnson also entered service in 1943 and was a crew member manning 155 MM Howitzers.
