Rolling Hills Care Center resident selected for Oklahoma Honor Flight

CATOOSA —

Charles Story, 88, a World War II veteran, will be traveling from Tulsa to Washington D. C April 30, 2014 through the Oklahoma Honor Flight Network.  Honor Flight Network recognizes American Veterans for their sacrifices and achievements by sending them to Washington D.C. to see their memorial at no cost. 
Top priority is given to WWII veterans and terminally ill veterans from all wars. Guardians fly with the Veterans on every flight providing assistance and helping the veteran have a safe, memorable and rewarding experience. 
Rolling Hills Care Center is a member of the Green Country Health Care Association. The association asked for nominations of member facilities and paid for the guardian to travel with the veteran. Don Cahwee, a member of the association who is also a veteran, will be traveling with Mr. Story. 
A program to recognize and honor the veterans will be held at the Spirit Bank Event Center the night before send off. On Wednesday, April 30th the veterans will begin their journey at 4:30am. They will fly to D.C. and arrive at the World War II Memorial around 12:30pm. They will visit the Lincoln, Vietnam, and Korean Memorials as time permits. The will drive by other memorials and view the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery. The veterans will fly back to Tulsa that evening arriving around 9 p.m.
Rolling Hills Care Center is honored to serve our Veterans during this time in their life. Story was a Merchant Marine who enlisted in 1943.
