Each of the people who spoke at the Michigan C.A.R. State Conference banquet really had a message worth listening to – the DAR State Regent, the SAR State President, the SR State President, Mrs Pettit speaking on behalf of all three of Michigan’s Honor Flight hubs, and Mr. Rogge, the Vice President of the Michigan Council Vietnam Veterans of American speaking on behalf of Michigan’s Vietnam veterans. Of course, my favorite was Mrs. Bradley, the C.O.O. of the National Honor Flight Network, who brought the surprise announcement that the Michigan C.A.R. Society has been given a matching grant from the Dick and Betsy DeVos Foundation to help us get across the finish line on our State Project to send a plane full of Vietnam veterans on an Honor Flight!
