LARGO – Largo Lions Club member Willis Harvey was one of 80 World War II veterans who participated in an Honor Flight to visit national memorials in Washington, D.C., May 27.

Fellow Lions Club member John Day accompanied Harvey as his guardian during Mission No. 17 of the Honor Flight program, which provides the transportation to World War II veterans free of charge.

“There were 80 WWII vets on the plane, and it was a very emotional and meaningful experience for all to visit the many memorials in our capital city,” Day wrote in a press release explaining the experience.

Harvey served in the European theater, going overseas with the 42nd Infantry Division in November 1944. He returned in May 1946 and received the Combat Infantryman Badge, Purple Heart, World War II Victory Ribbon and The European Theater Of Operations Medal.
