The Story County Freedom Flight is honoring Story County veterans from WWII, Korea and Vietnam for all of their sacrifices. We are doing this by sending them to Washington, D.C. to visit their memorials.
Congratulations to SCFF Committee for being awarded the Governor’s Volunteer Recognition Award on June 27, 2013
Freedom Flight Journey – Words by Charles Kniker – Song: “Sentimental Journey” (1944)
Gonna take a Freedom Flight Journey,
Goona fly to D.C. land.
Gonna tour some monument memorials
With some buds, won’t it be grand?
Had my bag, got my reservation,
Spent a night on a big bird.
Like a child in wild anticipation,
I hope for voices long not heard.
Seven, that’s the time we left at seven.
This is just a piece of heaven.
Countin’ every hour, I soon lost track
That took me back.
Never thought my heart could be so yearny.
Why did I decide to serve?
Had to take that Freedom Flight Journey
Freedom Flight Journey home.
