Brig. Gen. Kirk Vollmecke meets with World War II veterans Sept. 27 at the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport prior to the veterans' departure for Washington, D.C. The commanding general for the Mission and Installation Contracting Command traveled with veterans from Fredericksburg, Texas, to their departure point and spoke briefly to the veterans thanking them for the significance of their contributions to this nation. The trip for veterans was part of Honor Flight Austin, which transports World War II veterans to Washington to visit memorials dedicated in honor of their service and sacrifices and returns them home through donations.
