Morning Pointe of Knoxville (TN) residents Bob Chadwick, Jean Carson, and Charles Dempsey (left to right, first row) and Norman Watson, John Huff, and Jim Thompson (left to right, second row) take a minute to remember their fallen comrades during HonorAir Knoxville’s virtual flight. Founded by local business owner Eddie Mannis, HonorAir Knoxville provides free flights to Washington, D.C. for World War II, Korean War, and Vietnam War veterans in East Tennessee and “virtual flights” for veterans who are unable to participate in the standard flight due to health or other concerns. Chadwick, Carson, Dempsey, Watson, Huff, and Thompson are all World War II veterans, who, thanks to HonorAir Knoxville, were able to see the World War II monument with their own eyes. “We are so grateful to HonorAir Knoxville for selecting Morning Pointe residents to participate in this prestigious event,” says Pat Anderson, the life enrichment director at the assisted living community. “Our veterans have done a tremendous service for this country, protecting our freedom, and they deserve our utmost gratitude.”
