Cans 4 Kansas Honor Flights comes to Lincoln

McPherson resident Warren Vincent is spreading his wings with a new collection site for Cans 4 Kansas Honor Flights, set up at the Citizen’s State Bank and Trust Co., parking lot in Lincoln.

Cans 4 Kansas Honor Flights is a mission to help fund Kansas Honor Flights by recycling aluminum cans. Vincent, who started this project in 2011, said Lincoln is the northern-most site of now 21 locations spread around central Kansas.

Kansas Honor Flights is a nonprofit organization sending Kansas veterans of WWII, and the Korean and Vietnam wars, to Washington, D.C., to visit the memorials. Last year, Cans 4 Kansas Honor Flights collected enough cans to send 32 veterans on an honor flight. Vincent said, this year, he is aiming for 35.
