WOOHOO!  The 2017 Flight season is here.  Some hubs are flying this month, while others will wait until April or later.  Check out all the flight dates here.  

My hub, Honor Flight Columbus, will fly its first flight of the new year on April 15th. I am going as a Guardian on that one, and I am so excited.  HFC Guardian Coordinator Beth Johnson recently posted some updates about this flight on her Facebook page, but here it is:

Here are some stats for 13 of our 84 veterans for our 4-15-2017 Honor Flight Columbus trip. Do you want to thank them for their service? Write a letter--and send to the Honor Flight office by April 6! Do you want to thank them for their service - in person?! Come to the Welcome Home at 8:45pm on Saturday, April 15! *as always, have questions?! ASK ME!!! I would LOVE to tell you about this awesome organization!**
