A spokesman for Honor Flight Wichita wants people to know his organization has no connection or affiliation with the old Central Prairie Honor Flight organization based in Great Bend. That organization's director LaVeta Miller was arrested Thursday.
Miller is charged with embezzling over $100,000 from the program and other accounts under the umbrella of Central Prairie RC & D. She was fired from the organization in July.
Herb Duncan with Honor Flight Wichita said his group has no affiliation or connection to Central Prairie Honor Flight organization. In an interview with KFDI's John Wright, Duncan called the news of Miller's arrest "very, very embarrassing."
He compared the situation to someone stealing from the church treasury. Duncan said no one with Wichita Honor Flight had anything to do with it and his organization is made up of volunteers.
The next Honor Flight will be held in spring of 2013. The mission of Kansas Honor Flight is to send Kansas veterans of World War II to Washington, D.C. to visit the World War II memorial.
