Taking a recent trip to Washington, D.C., as part of the Honor Flight Network, military veteran John Henderson visited several monuments during a guided tour of the nation’s capital. Henderson, 88, is pictured at left holding a picture of himself as a teen taken shortly after he was drafted to serve in World War II. The oversized picture was displayed last weekend by a current member of the Armed Forces who used it to welcome home the flight participant when he arrived at Evansville Regional Airport.
While serving in the U.S. Navy during World War II, he was deployed to the South Pacific. Above, he poses with a cannon at a military base in the Philippines.
