POW/MIA Service to shine light on Honor Flight

PLATTSBURGH — Danny Kaifetz, the organizer of North Country Honor Flight, will be keynote speaker for the POW/MIA Remembrance Day Service set for 5 p.m. Thursday at the Memorial Chapel, 100 U.S. Oval.

At this, the 10th year the service has been held, World War II veterans Napoleon Light and Rodney Wright will share their experience as guests of Honor Flight, visiting the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C., earlier this year.

Local clergy will lead the interdenominational service honoring veterans of that war as wells prisoners of war and those missing in action in the Cold War, Korean War, Vietnam War, Gulf War and Iraq and Afghanistan “and all U.S. troops and civilians in harm’s way,” a press release said.

The Memorial Choir will be accompanied by organist George Cantin and conducted by Carl Kokes. 

All are welcome.
