On behalf of Honor Flight Kern County and local area veterans, a big thank you to the Tehachapi Area Association of Realtors. Through your continued support and donations, you have sent 11 WWII, Korean and Vietnam veterans to Washington, D.C., to visit their memorial along with others.

This year alone, your donation sent four veterans on a memorable trip they so enjoyed. Honor Flight would not exist if it were not for organizations and people like yourselves.

A special thank you to Steve Miles for organizing the Realtors Night Out Fundraiser; it was a great success.

The one thing all Honor Flight veterans say after experiencing their trip is “please thank those who made their trip possible.” So from the 1,700 veterans on 41 flights, THANK YOU!

Rick Zanutto, Tehachapi
