Upcoming fundraiser for next Freedom Flight already scheduled!
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.

The Story County Freedom Flight Committee would like to invite anyone in the community that would like to volunteer for the 2013 flight to join us for our committee meetings. Any and all help is greatly appreciated not only by the Committee but also by the Veterans that we are able to send on the flight.
