Our monthly newsletter, the Bugle, is in need of a manager/editor. This is a ground floor opportunity to shape a vital communications tool for our chapter.
The Honor Flight Program may be known to you and has even been featured as a plot element in some TV shows. Honor Flight began as a way to enable WWII veterans to travel to Washington, DC and visit the memorials there at no cost. Four times a year, veterans and their guardian are flown to DC. Many eligible vets may not know of Honor Flight.Though World War II veterans and those who are terminally ill have top priority, the program has been expanded to include Korean War and Vietnam War vets. To apply, go to at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is also an application for those desiring to be guardians. The national phone number is 937-521-2400.There is also an Honor Flight Solo Program for WWII, Korean War or Vietnam veterans and accompanying family or friends (“guardians”) willing to fund and secure their OWN transportation to the Baltimore Washington International (BWI) Airport or the BWI Hilton.
