CLINTON, Tenn. — Steve Medlock, U.S. Navy Vietnam War veteran and resident at The Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence, Clinton, took to the skies, as he  got a once-in-a-lifetime chance to visit Washington D.C.
LuAnn Hanchett, friend of Morning Pointe, worked with Medlock’s daughter, Melissa, to sign him up for the Honor Flight through HonorAir Knoxville Flight, which celebrates its 10th anniversary and 25th flight to the nation’s capital. Accompanied by Hanchett, Medlock joined a fleet of other Knoxville area veterans en route to witness the wartime memorials, and to remember and reflect.
According to the HonorAir Knoxville website, the organization flies veterans to Washington D.C. to view the memorials built in their honor, free of charge.

Morning Pointe never misses the opportunity to honor its veterans, partnering with local organizations to recognize them for their service as part of the Meaningful Day(tm) program.
