WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ World War II veteran Don Revert is going to Washington, D.C., for the first time this month on the first such trip offered this year by the state's new Kansas Honor Flight organization.
The 99-year-old World War II veteran would be the oldest veteran to fly out of Kansas as part of the program, a national effort that started sending WWII vets to Washington in 2005.
The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/NyUnk6) reports the program's main hub in Kansas, Central Prairie Honor Flights in Great Bend, was kicked out of the national organization in April because of management issues.
The hub had to cancel all of its flights in 2012 because of a money shortage.
A Hutchinson-based organization, Kansas Honor Flights, started operating the state's newest hub in May.
