Alissa Sauer

Russellville Park resident Leo Tautfest, 89, was recently invited to join the Portland Honor Flight as they travel to Washington, D.C., this fall. Learn more about his honorable service and how residents at Russellville Park are making the most of retirement!

Leo Tautfest has been a resident of Russellville Park senior living since 2014. He was recently featured on the local news after receiving a phone call from Honor Flights of Portland, inviting him to participate in their September 2022 trip to Washington D.C. Leo served in the U.S. Navy in the 1950s, serving in Japan and Korea.

An Honor Flight invites any veteran that served in the U.S. military during wartime or peacetime to take a free trip to Washington D.C. and reflect a the memorials built in their honor. The trip includes memorials such as the World War II Memorial on the National Mall, Arlington National Cemetery, and the Air Force Memorial, just to name a few. This will be Leo’s first trip to Washington D.C. in 45 years and his first opportunity to see many of the more recent memorials built in honor of his service.

“My time in the service was rich and good for me. This is an opportunity to remember the sacrifices of those who served.” – Leo T., Russellville Park resident
