On behalf of Leatherstocking Honor Flight, I'd like to take this opportunity to offer a heartfelt thank you to everyone who made the benefit breakfast held at the American Legion Post 337 in Broadalbin such a huge success.
LHF is a local hub of The National Honor Flight, which sends World War II veterans on an all-expenses paid trip to Washington, D.C., to visit the National World War II?Memorial. Since its start in 2005, more than 81,000 WW II veterans have been able to go, all paid for by private fundraisers and donations.
The breakfast benefit on Sept. 15 raised more than $6,000, with more donations still coming in. The money raised paid for the upcoming flight in October in full. Your support and generosity was incredible.
Believe me when I tell you, this trip is life changing and unforgettable for everyone involved.

Once again, thank you.
