Hundreds give veterans a hero’s welcome at the Sunport

U.S. Marine Corps Sgt. Nicholas McCreary presents an American flag to Charlotte Clark of Albuquerque on Friday at the conclusion of an Honor Flight, during which 22 New Mexico World War II veterans returned from an all-expense-paid trip to visit the National World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. Clark’s husband, Arthur Clark, had signed up for the Honor Flight but passed away in April. She was also presented a framed photo of her husband in his World War II Marine uniform. (Roberto E.
