Florida High School students raise money for veteran Honor Flights

Love This....Florida Kids giving back and getting some of our nation's heroes a well-deserved honor.

Suncoast High School on Florida's east coast in Riviera Beach has been raising money for "Honor Flight Southeast Florida," which flies war veterans to Washington, D.C., as a thank you for their service.

They presented a $8,750 check to the organization.

“The few of us that remain, we have the privilege of helping our kids see not only what we went through but why we went through it, so they understand freedom and liberty and the things we enjoy and take for granted cost something, and it did, it cost much,” said World War II veteran Charles “Chick” Phillips.

A few of the students will also get to make the trip scheduled for April 11.
