Indy Honor Flight Information

INDY HONOR FLIGHT

To All Veterans and Veteran Organizations:
Just wanted to let you know that another flight of 70 World War II Veterans went to Washington, DC on Saturday, September 6th.
There are two more flights scheduled from Indianapolis and one from Evansville, IN.
At the conclusion of each flight (except for Evansville) there will be a Welcome Home Celebration at Plainfield High School around 8:30 – 8:45 PM.
You are all encouraged to attend this Welcome Home…there are no fees or costs associated with this event. There’s plenty of parking, there will be padded bleacher seats to sit on, the Indianapolis 500 Gordon Pipers will be there to keep things lively, Major Ryan Core will be the Emcee and the Honored Guests will be 70 World War II Veterans who will have just returned from a special day during which they got to see their Memorial and some other sights, culminating with a stop at Arlington National Ceremony where they will lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns.
As an aside, the ages of these men and women veterans range from 83 to 96, and they served all over the European and Pacific Theatres of War.
I guarantee you, if you can make it, it will be an experience you won’t soon forget.
Remember, Saturday…October 18th, November 8th …Plainfield High School…arrive between 8:00 and 8:30 PM and be prepared to cheer these veterans home.
