Honor Flight of Southern Arizona is a program that provides veterans of WWII, Vietnam, and the Korean War an opportunity to view the national war memorials in Washington DC.
A two-day chartered air trip will leave Tucson on April 23. During the return flight on April 24, “mail call” will occur. Each veteran is given letters from family, friends and local school children that mentions our gratitude for their service in protecting us and our democracy.
If you’d like to participate, we could use your help:
- Please write 55 notes or letters (or 1 note/letter with 54 copies)
- Address “To a Hero” or “To a Veteran”
- Fold and seal with one sticker
- Deliver to Kay Robinson before April 8th at 898 N. Kenneth Drive
- See HERE for ideas to start your letter or note. The letters may be short. Many thanks for your time reflecting, taking action and for letting the vets know that they have not been forgotten.
Mail Call is an emotional and unforgettable time for the men and women who have served.
