It’s official: the next WDAY Honor Flight is scheduled for Nov 5 and 6, 2017. The announcement was made at the RedHawks Jersey Day fundraiser on Sunday.
Letters will be going out to those invited to go on the trip. Again, we’d love to take absolutely everyone who applies as soon as they apply. However, there is a waiting list to go on the trip. Flyers are chosen based both on dates of military service and date of application. (For example: WWII vets are put ahead of Korean War Vets and Korean War Vets are put ahead of Vietnam vets.) It is not necessary to have served overseas or in the wars themselves. If you served in the eras you qualify. Special conditions are made for veterans who have terminal illnesses. After dates of service, flyers are selected based upon date we receive your application. So if you have not applied, get your application in and you will be considered for future flights.
A pre-flight meeting will be held for veterans going on this trip. You are encouraged to come or send someone to come on your behalf to receive some valuable information about your trip. Dates and location for the pre-flight meeting is included in your letter.
We’re looking forward to another fantastic trip! If you have any questions email Beth Bouley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
