Former Carbon Glow resident Luther Adams, 82, of Morehead, visited Washington, D.C. on August 27 with a group of 42 other military veterans from World War II, the Korean War or the Vietnam War.
The group attended the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery, and toured war memorials including the Marine Corps War Memorial, the Air Force Memorial, the World War II Memorial and the Korean War Memorial.
Adams, who was an aircraft mechanic on B-36 bombers in the Air Force, was joined on the trip by his granddaughter, Shelby Adams.
Adams is the uncle of Bob Banks of Jeremiah. The Honor Flight was sponsored by Fleming-Mason Energy Cooperative and Kentucky’s Touchstone Energy Cooperatives.
