Sons of the American Legion Post 90 thanks supporters of U.P. Honor Flight

On May 21, a benefit for the UP Honor Flight was held at American Legion Post 90 Lake Linden by The Sons of The American Legion, Post 90, and Post 90 Auxiliary.

The benefit raised more than $15,000 to send veterans to Washington DC to see the memorials built in their honor.
