Terry Salyer honored to fly with the Veterans as an Escort

Terry Salyer, of Exeter, had several strong motives for volunteering as an escort for the fourth Heartland Honor Flight and this was his most important one, honoring the World War II veterans.

He emphasized that “The story is not about me. It is about the World War II veterans. I was just there to help them along.” Both Terry and his wife Elaine are veterans of the Vietnam War. The served at the same hospital in Qui Nhon where Terry was a medic and Elaine was an R.N. She served a one year tour and Terry was there from 1966 to 1969.

When a spot to ride with the veterans on the October 22nd flight to Washington, D.C. came up he jumped at the chance, “I know my Dad will never get to see it so I wanted to go for him and see it for him. I sent my Dad a letter about my trip and all of the pictures and he got very emotional about it. That made the whole experience worth it for me. It meant so much to him," Salyer reported.


If you would like an opportunity to donate to the next Heartland Honor Flight, which is scheduled for this month, you can send a check to Heartland Honor Flight VFW, P O Box 4552, Lincoln, NE 68502. Depending on donations the program will restart in the spring. For more information on the program visit .
