Grand Marais Chamber Adopts a Veteran for Honor Flight

The Grand Marais Chamber of Commerce recently donated to the "Adopt-a-Veteran" program. This donation gave one WWII veteran the opportunity to go on the Mission V Honor Flight to Washington, DC on September 18, 2013. On Mission V, 76 veterans were able to tour the World War II Memorial. We thank them for their service and sacrifices. With the completion of Mission V, almost 400 Upper Peninsula WWII veterans have enjoyed a trip to Washington to view the memorial that was erected in their honor. See the photo at right.
