For those that don’t ride, be at the Airport a little before 0600 and meet and greet all the Heroes going on the Honor Flight. Shake the hands of the Heroes and say THANK YOU. Some could also use a hand getting out of the car and into wheelchairs.

 

The return flight lands at 2130 hrs for any of you that would like to be there to Welcome the Heroes Home please be at the airport by 2100 hrs (9pm)

 

All WW2 Veterans go on the trip for Free, paid for by community donations. This is a great way to Show appreciation for Our Freedoms that they protected over 70 years ago. WW2 Veterans are our living History and sadly they won’t be here for much longer.
