On LI Honor Flight, a bond is forged for an adventure back in time

Honor Flight Long Island takes aging veterans on one-day trips to see America's war memorials, providing them with the plane fare, bus transportation and food. Each vet is accompanied by a volunteer "guardian," who pays $400 and helps the vet get around for the day. Sarah O'Connor, 39, of Cold Spring Harbor, was guardian for WWII and Korean War veteran Hugh Niland, 89, of Lindenhurst, on Saturday, Sept. 21, 2019. (Credit: Newsday / Johnny MIlano)
