Aug. 20th Honor Flight Northwestern Ohio

Tags: HeroStories

On Aug. 20th Honor Flight Northwestern Ohio will have another flight from Toledo to Washington, so our WWII Veterans can see their Memorial.  I'm not 100% sure, but I think almost everything will be the same as the other flights.  Help is needed early in the morning (starting at 4:00 am) decorating the Grand Aire hanger.  After that the Veterans will start to arrive, and help will be needed to get everyone registered/checked in and ready to go. The flight will depart around 8:30-9:00 am

The Patriot Guard will have a Flag line (7:00-7:30 am) to honor these American Heroes as the arrive and depart to Washington in the morning.  We will return again that night (around 7:00-7:30 pm) as our Veterans arrive back home from their journey (8:30 pm).  Help will be needed again getting things set-up and later help will be needed taking everything down.  The Patriot Guard will have another Flag Line out front near the plane as these Veterans get off the plane and go inside the hanger.

Please if you can find the time to attend the flag lines, or help in anyway, you will not believe how this experience will effect your life, these American Heroes have told us, "This was the Best day of their Lives".  You have to see the happiness in their eyes and joy in their faces to really understand how powerful this Memorial trip is to each and every one of them.  Please help us Honor each of them for their Service to our Nation.

Thank you all, and I'll see you at the airport on Aug. 20th
