Saluting our veterans through Honor Flights
Puget Sound Honor Flight is a non-profit organization created solely to honor American veterans for all their sacrifices and service.  The Western Washington hub began its important work in 2013 with a single goal:  to recognize local veterans living in Western Washington.  During this evening's program, Rotarians will be treated to an overview of the Honor Flight program, and enjoy hearing from one or more World War II veterans who served at Pearl Harbor and who have experienced one of the Honor Flights.
Bill Knudsen has lived in Kirkland for 25 years, and has served on the PSHF board since it began.  He was born in Missoula Montana, but moved to the Pacific NW at age 3.  He is a proud Husky, and spent his entire career in sales and marketing.  He worked in the radio industry for 25 years at KOL, KVI, and KIRO, and then spent a decade as vice president of marketing and sales for the Seattle Mariners. 
Prior to his retirement he also ran a sales and marketing consulting company which served over 100 professional sports teams, as well as 25 colleges and universities.  He has exclusively dedicated the past seven years of his life to the Honor Flight organization for a very special reason.  Which he will share with us during this program.
Bill has four grown kids (2 boys and 2 girls) and has two, twin, 14 year old grandsons.
