FINAL PREPARATIONS UNDERWAY
The October 5th Flight is right around the corner!
Our team at HFLA is excited to be making final preparations for the flight on October 5th. We are anticipating great weather and look forward to spending the day with the Veterans who have been selected.
We currently have a limited number of spots still available for the Flight. If you are interested in participating, please reach out to us and we will contact you as soon as possible.
We want to give a special thanks to the Alfred E. Flynn VFW in New Orleans for hosting our Friday “Meet & Greet” meeting for a second year in a row, and look forward to spending time with them as we introduce our Veteran’s and Guardian’s as a group for the first time. They have become an integral part of our Flight experience, and we look forward furthering the partnership in the future.
As always, if you have any questions or are looking to volunteer or donate, please do not hesitate to reach out by emailing us at email@example.com or on Facebook by searching “Honor Flight LA”!
Honor Flight Louisiana | Honoring Our Veterans
The Honor Flight Network is a non-profit organization created solely to honor America’s veterans for their sacrifices. We transport our heroes to Washington, D.C. to visit and reflect at their memorials. Top priority is given to the senior veterans – World War II survivors, along with those other veterans who may be terminally ill. Time is of the essence.
As the last of the Greatest Generation approach their final curtain call, we are witnesses to tremendous loss as we embrace a precious opportunity.
Over 800 World War II veterans die every day. They take their stories, history, and enormous bravery with them.
But many are still among us. The time to act is NOW! In another 5-7 years almost all of our World War II veterans will be gone.
Honor Flight Louisiana is a 100% volunteer effort. All of us, our Board, our Committees, the whole platoon are all volunteers. None are paid. All of the money we raise goes directly toward flying veterans to Washington D.C.
We welcome anyone with a heart for honoring veterans. We need your support in all areas. It takes dozens of volunteers working tirelessly together to have a successful Honor Flight.
If your heart is telling you to get involved, then "join the cause". Our volunteers donate their talents and services in a variety of ways.
Please, feel free to explore our site, including the “Missions” tab which has a detailed breakdown of our first mission - the Inaugural Flight.
