Local Veterans Take Honor Flight To Washington D.C.

Nashville residents Lee Roy Borowiak and Lee Jett were honored for their military service as guests on an Honor Flight to Washington D.C. May 14.

Borowiak’s guardian for the day was his daughter, Sara Habbe. His grandson, Jon Habbe, serving in the Navy in Virginia Beach, Virginia, surprised him by joining them for the day. Jett’s step-daughter, Amie Thompson, was his guardian.

The group of 183 veterans, guardians, and nurses flew from Veterans Airport in Marion on a Sun Country charter flight at 6 a.m. They returned the same day at 8 p.m.
