For Veterans Day, I want to let you know about something coming up in January that means a lot to me. For several years, my beloved Joey has been an escort guardian for a World War II vet going down to the WWII Memorial in D.C. with Honor Flight South Jersey. If you don’t know about Honor Flight, it’s magnificent. Vets from both WWII and Korea, aging now, are transported together by plane and luxury bus from all over the country to see the monuments in Washington dedicated to them. It’s all free to the vets, and they’re accompanied one-on-one by younger people. That’s what Joey does every summer. But in January, like last year, he’ll also host a comedy show fundraiser that’s one of Honor Flight’s major sources of funds to keep the trips free for all the Jersey vets. Here are the details of the show, tickets on sale soon. Last year the show paid for a bus and a half full of veterans.
