Washington, D.C. bound
First veteran: Ron DeSpain with World War II Veteran Ray Casper at VFW  Post 6271 in Benson where the two are members. In June, Casper will be traveling to Washington, D.C., where he'll see the World War II Memorial as part of an Honor Flight program sponsored by the VFW post. DeSpain, who is the Honor Flight coordinator for the VFW in Benson, chose Casper as the first WWII veteran from Post 6271 for the trip, which is paid for through fundraisers and donations.
