WWII vet surprised with Honor Flight after assault by flag vandals

A 92-year-old World War II veteran who was assaulted while trying to protect his American and Marine Corps flags outside his Texas home was surprised Sunday with an Honor Flight to Washington, D.C.

After hearing noises outside his Dallas-area home earlier this month, Howard Banks said he went outside and confronted someone trying to steal or damage his flags. Mr. Banks, who was left legally blind by a flare on Iwo Jima, said he was shoved to the ground before the vandals ran off, the Associated Press reported.
Kaufman police are investigating.

This is a very nice story; read the whole thing.
