Sept 9, 2018 – Honor Flight Central Florida is pleased to report that our next and last scheduled flight for 2018 is quickly approaching . With a flight mission orientation scheduled for Saturday Sept 22nd, we will be hosting 50 of our home town heroes and 50 of their dedicated Guardians scheduled to travel to our Nation’s capital the following Saturday, September 29th. We are excited to be touring the Veteran Memorials on a mission of honor so that our heroes can view and reflect at those memorials built for them. It’s our deepest hope that we can provide a day that will show these brave and valiant men and women that their service is appreciated and that their sacrifices and those of others many since departed, will never ever be forgotten. Our group includes 12 Veterans of WWll, 19 Veterans of the Korea War and 19 Veterans of the Vietnam War era. Two of our Honored Vets are women that served our Country as Vietnam era Vets in the Army. Our most senior Honoree is a 98 year old WWII Veteran of the Army & Air Force who served as a famed Tuskegee Airman. Our group served in the Army, Air Force, Navy and Marine Corp. Many served in multiple war eras.

Our arrival back to Orlando the evening of Sept 29th will be on Southwest Airlines Flight # 6293 due in MCO (not Sanford) at 9:15PM. We hope you will save the date and mark your calendar so you can play an important part in the honor due these heroes, by joining our ground welcome team to provide a welcome home that these heroes deserve. Welcome home events are for the family. Bring flags, bring signs, and be prepared for a once in a lifetime chance to show each and every Veteran what their service and sacrifices means to you and America.

If you can read this, thank a teacher, but if you can read this in english, thank a Veteran!

Remember, “We can’t all be heroes. Some of us have to stand on the curb and clap as they walk by”
