When the Honor Flight traveled Monday to Washington, D.C., it carried a Merrill veteran who didn't expect the big celebration involved in his chance to take that trip.

Donald H. Radloff of Merrill was honored with a sponsorship for a Never Forgotten Honor Flight from the Waid Funeral Home on Thursday, Oct. 17.

Waid Funeral Home held a polka worship service back in September. The collection money from the service, along with money raised from a silent auction, was donated toward the Honor Flight.

"It brings great joy to our hearts to be able to sponsor an honored, local veteran to be able to visit the memorials in Washington, D.C.; maybe a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity," said Judy Plamann from Waid Funeral Home, organizer of the event.

"All our veterans have given so much to our country to protect our freedom ... It's wonderful to give a little bit back to them to show our appreciation. May God bless all our veterans."
