Representatives from Honor Flight Austin came to the members of the Central Texas Chapter of the Military Officers Association of America on Friday with a proposal to set up an honor flight for World War II, Korean War and Vietnam War veterans from Bell County.

Paul and Christa Strang, both volunteers with the nonprofit, spoke about what the nonprofit does for the elder generation of veterans and the impact honor flights have on the veterans during the CenTex MOAA’s monthly meeting at the Shilo Inn in Killeen.
