A once in a lifetime opportunity

SOLON– Bill Zenishek’s day started at 3 a.m. By the time he made it back to the Solon Care Center some 21 hours later, he had been to Washington, D.C. and back; and had seen most if not all of the nation’s war memorials and monuments.
Zenishek was on an Honor Flight, a chartered special taking veterans, primarily from World War II, on the trip of a lifetime.
