Buda veterans part of the latest “Honor Flight” to Washington D.C.

Posted by wlpo on April 30, 2015

Three heroes from Buda are headed to the nation’s capital.

Dean Barnett, Ron Bitting and Fran Kopp are in the latest group of military veterans flying to Washington D.C. as part of the “Honor Flight of the Quad Cities”. The flight gives veterans a chance to visit memorials honoring their service in the military. Preference is given to veterans who fought in World War II and the Korean War.

A camera crew from the Quad Cities was in Buda Wednesday morning as part of a ceremony for Barnett, Bitting and Kopp. They will fly out of the Quad Cities early Thursday and return around 10 Thursday night.
