The National Weather Service has issued heat advisories for much of Indiana today as humid air combines with readings in the 90s to make it feel much hotter.
The weather service said today’s highs are forecast to reach the lower to middle 90s across the state, but humid air will create heat indexes in the 105 to 110-degree range. The hottest readings will be in southwestern Indiana.
The concept of "honor flights" to reward United States war veterans by giving them free airliner trips to visit memorial sites in Washington, D.C. began in 2004 with World War II vets and will be continued on behalf of Korean War and Vietnam War vets.
Bob Myer of Allen County, vice president of Honor Flights of Northeastern Indiana, made that known at a recent meeting in Decatur of seven local WW II vets who were on the fifth honor flight from the Fort Wayne region to the national capital.
