HONOR FLIGHT AUSTIN

…benefits specifically for…

 PURPLE HEART RECIPIENTS

Chapter 1919 is working with others to develop a transportation hub here in Austin to operate as “HONOR FLIGHT AUSTIN,”.  This project is part of a nationwide effort to honor Veterans and provide them with a trip to Washington D.C, and an opportunity to visit their memorial.  Presently, the goal of the project is to honor Veterans of World War II and host their visit to the memorial that opened there recently and to show these Veterans that our Nation honors their service while they are still able to make the visit. Honor Flight Austin just completed their first flight in June 2012, which was highly successful.  They flew 25 WWII Veterans to Washington, D. C., to visit their Memorial.  All was completed at NO COST to the Veteran.  The next flight is scheduled for Tuesday, October 9, 2012, and will take 50 WWII Veterans to visit their National WWII Memorial.  Please visit the web-site: www.honorflightaustin.org and complete the application if you are eligible.  Also, if you are NOT a WWII Veteran and would like to Honor our WWII Veterans, please make a donation to ensure this project remains funded.  Donations may be made directly to Honor Flight Austin, or through MOPH Chapter 1919.  Be sure to designate "Honor Flight Austin" on your check.

 

Chapter 1919 is now accepting donations to assist Central Texas WWII and other Veterans with serious illnesses to fly to Washington, D.C. to view their respective War Memorials; at NO COST to the Veteran.

 

Donations should be made out to "Honor Flight Austin" and mailed to:
