The service and sacrifice of William Evans will never be forgotten. Bill flew on an Honor Flight in 2009, and is a part of our memories and history. Our cherished World War II Veterans quite literally saved the world, in exchange for a debt of sacrifice that we will never be able to repay. On behalf of Honor Flight Columbus, please accept our most sincere condolences.
