A flight for Lind
Windsor resident Martin Lind, a developer and the president of Water Valley Land Co., had a flight named in his honor as the Northern Colorado Honor Flight gathered Sept. 15 at the Embassy Suites in Loveland for another trip to Washington, D.C.
It was the 11th honor flight from northern Colorado since 2008. In that time, about 1,500 veterans from World War II, Korea and later Purple Heart recipients have participated.
The Martin Lind Family Flight gave the experience to more veterans than ever, adding four seats. There was room for 124 veterans and 62 guardians. The flight was called the Martin Lind Family Flight to thank the Lind family and company for their support. According to flight organizer Stan Cass, their donations since the first flight totaled enough to pay for an entire flight.
