Joe Williamson of Tryon and Landrum (Williamson’s Paint) has been selected to join fellow World War II veterans on an Honor Flight on Wednesday, May 23 to visit the WWII Memorial in Washington, D.C. He will be accompanied by John Cash of Landrum.
During the course of the day, Williamson and the other participants will have the opportunity to visit some of the most sacred grounds in United States history. The group will begin the day with a flag presentation at the WWII Memorial and will then visit the Vietnam, Korean and Lincoln memorials. They will also visit the Iwo Jima Memorial and will end the day at Arlington National Cemetery, where they will observe the changing of the guard ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
“We are proud of your distinguished service to our nation,” said Bill Dukes of Honor Flight South Carolina in a letter Williamson received informing him of his selection for Honor Flight. “We gratefully applaud your service to our nation and hope that in this small way, we can let you see how thankful we are that you gave so much to preserve the freedoms we all enjoy today.”
