Walden Rotarian Brian Maher is Chairman of Hudson Valley Honor Flight, an organization that brings World War II veterans from Montgomery, New York, to the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. At Montgomery, the veterans are escorted by 100 Rolling Thunder motorcycle riders to Stewart Airport where hundreds of appreciative citizens waving American flags greet them with cheers. The Honor Flight Network program now has over 70 chapters throughout the United States, and 2013 marks their ninth year running. They have transported over 81,000 veterans. The interview contains lots more interesting information, including what happens on the return flight back to Stewart. Mr. Maher is mayor of Walden, re-elected since his first campaign at the age of 23.
