January 9, 2019 – Central Florida
Honor Flight Central Florida has made definitive arrangements for their first two flight missions of 2019.
We are pleased to have booked group travel for May 4th and June 15th, 2019, and are excited to continue to make these flights possible for Veterans that apply at absolutely no cost to them.
Those Veterans applying should be aware of the priorities we follow: Seriously ill Veterans are given the top priority, followed by those Veterans of WWll, Korea and Vietnam eras in that order. We endeavor to take all that qualify for our flight missions, but do have a waiting list, so we encourage all Veterans of the aforementioned eras to apply promptly. Allow for us to take you on that one last mission – one of honor and closure.
Members of the public that want to participate in our flight missions have an unparalleled opportunity to support our honorees as Honor Flight “Guardians” to our treasured Veterans, and accompany them on our trips to the capital. Guardians are the front line battle buddies to our heroes, and there to support them throughout the Honor Flight experience by assisting them in the visits we make to Arlington National Cemetery, and the WWll, Korea and Vietnam Memorials built in their honor. Guardians have an immense responsibility that will provide equally immense personal satisfaction for playing a role we consider to be a true privilege. Being a Guardian to one of our honored Veterans provides a completely unique way to personally give back to those who have given us all so very much. Guardians are the angels that help to make these flights possible and witness firsthand the immediate and lasting impact our program has on our heroes. We are blessed to be able to raise funds to make these trips completely free for our heroes, and so, ask that our Guardians cover their own travel cost by way of a donation to Honor Flight Central Florida.
Applications to fly with us as a Veteran or Guardian are available here on our website. When we have received them, and have a spot available for you, we will make personal contact. No donations from Guardians are requested until we can confirm your travel.
