The 2012 documentary film, “Honor Flight,” was shown this past Saturday at LB Homes in Fergus Falls. The film, based on the Honor Flight program for veterans (especially those who served in World War II or who are near the end of life), flies them free of charge to Washington D.C. to see the war memorials and the changing of the guard at Arlington Cemetery.

Over $300 was raised following the movie on Saturday, with proceeds going toward future Honor Flights.

Lakeland Home Care and Lakeland Hospice sponsored the event as part of their We Honor Veterans services.
