Resident Receives Honor Flight to Washington, D.C.

Sam Hutchinson, a resident of McCrite Plaza Topeka, will participate in the Honor Flight Kansas-Student Edition from Central Heights High School that departs June 5th for Washington, D.C. Sam, an infantry Instructor stationed at Fort Riley, trained servicemen to fight in Korea during his service years beginning in 1952. After Sam was discharged as a Corporal he made his home with his wife and family in Topeka.

Over a two day period, Sam and other Veterans will tour the Korean, Lincoln, WWII and Vietnam Memorials. Sam’s advice to this generation is to, “Be thankful for the freedoms that you have.” It is an honor to have Sam living in our Community and we appreciate his service to our Country.
