Old Glory Honor Flight
We’re honored to partner with Old Glory Honor Flight of Northeast Wisconsin, a local nonprofit, whose mission is to offer our local WWll, Korean and Vietnam war veterans a safe, memorable, and rewarding tour of honor to our nation’s capital. It’s a whirlwind trip to Washington, DC; it happens all in one day and is completely free to the veteran. It’s one way our community can say ‘thank you’ for their service and sacrifices to our great country.
We host multiple honor flights per year and provide vital ground support to the annual Yellow Ribbon Honor Flight during EAA’s AirVenture in Oshkosh, WI.
Since 2009, we have proudly assisted Old Glory Honor Flight in accomplishing over 60 missions to date, assisted over 4,000 war veterans taking their tour of honor, and hosted over 50,000 individuals, families, friends, volunteers, and community supporters during the festive ‘Welcome Home’ celebration events on flight day.
