I am not impressed, Good for the Honor Flights, but really? Only $75,000? Steel Dynamic’s have planes that they travel all over the world on. How about using those planes to transport these honored vets. We know what the $75,000 is, its a tax write off. Trust me, Mark Millet and the rest of his fat cat administrator’s could pony up more than a measly $75,000. Here is a Idea how about donating a cool million to St. Jude’s or Shriners without splashing it all over the media to get at-a-boy’s to let everyone know just how giving and great you are. I for one am not impressed.
