Honor Flight 2016
June 11th, 2016
The 2016 Honor Flight Memorial Ride is coming soon. Join us as we celebrate the 72nd anniversary of the D-Day invasion and the sacrifice of the thousands who lost their lives in the name of freedom. There is no better way to show your support for our WWII, Korean War, and Vietnam War Veterans than by coming out to support this event. We hope to see everyone there again this year, and continue making this a huge success for the Honor Flight Organization. All proceeds go directly to funding the Honor Flight program and flying these Veterans to Washington DC to see the memorials built in their honor. The best part is that it is all free of charge for the Veterans, but as you can understand, it is quite an endeavor for Honor Flight to make this happen. We need your support. Come ride with us, come meet the veterans of these foreign wars, have a great time, and take part in a very worthy cause. We look forward to seeing you all there.
