Fred R. Smith was one of the dozens of veterans who showed up for the Honor Flight movie shown at LB Homes last weekend.  More than three dozen veterans were pinned and thanked for their service in all branches of the military.  Honor Flight is a program for veterans, especially those who served in World War II, or who are near the end of life, and flies them free of charge to Washington, D.C., to see the war memorials and the changing of the guard at Arlington Cemetery.0504.Honor Flight.pinning
