We are excited about a special day coming up for our Dad, and we would like to ask for your help in making it extra special. Many of our friends know him, and it's ok for us to communicate with you this way because he is not online. We want to surprise him with your help. He will never know about this ahead of time, unless someone let's it slip, so PLEASE, let's keep this between us!
On Saturday, May 11th, just 6 days before his 86th birthday, our Dad, Rev. Caudle Adkins, Jr. will be joining more than 130 other WWII and Korean War Veterans on an “Honor Flight” to Washington, DC. The flight will leave Tri State Airport at 6:00 AM and will return near midnight on the same day. The veterans will tour the WWII, Korean, and Viet Nam Memorials and the Iwo Jima Memorial in Arlington, VA. They will travel with a team that includes a Medical Doctor, three nurses, and a registered physical therapist. Wheel chairs will be provided for those who need them.
