"I look forward to joining our World War II veterans on their trip to Washington where they will visit the World War II Memorial, the Korean and Vietnam War Memorials, and the Lincoln Memorial. The event ends at Arlington National Cemetery where the veterans will go to the Tomb of the Unknowns," Mr. Stearns says. "These flights are possible because of the dedication of the veterans' friends and families, and the volunteers and contributors."
"When I talk to the steering committee, they all seem very supportive and a sense it's a good idea" to run, he said. "They're just waiting to see what the waiver is."
