Veteran Residents Take Honor Flight to Nation’s Capital

Bedford Green Apartments residents Jim Bancroft and Mike Kaminski visit WW II Memorial

Two residents of Bedford Green Apartments, a property managed by Peabody Properties, Inc., were recently flown to Washington, D.C., by Honor Flight New England to visit and reflect at the World War II Memorial.

Jim Bancroft and Mike Kaminski, residents at Bedford Green Apartments, a permanent supportive housing community for formerly homeless veterans age 55 and older, were flown to Washington, D.C., on April 30, courtesy of Honor Flight New England, a non-profit organization out of Hooksett, New Hampshire, dedicated to honoring America’s most senior veterans. Through donations, Honor Flight New England transports our nation’s heroes to D.C. to visit at memorials at no cost to the veteran. Top priority is given to World War II veterans, like Kaminski who is presently in a wheelchair.

Bancroft initiated the application process for Kaminski last August and then learned that the WW II veteran had been selected to be part of the April 30th Honor Flight New England. Bancroft accompanied Kaminski on the trip and assisted with all travel details associated with the recent flight out of Boston’s Logan Airport.

“The Honor Flight New England trip was one neither Mike nor Jim will ever forget,” said Bernice Dizon, property manager of Bedford Green Apartments. “Both men served their country proudly; and for Mike, the opportunity to visit the memorial honoring him and all fellow WW II veterans, was monumental.”
