Old Glory Honor Flight
Friday, August 1
Welcome Home Ceremony, approximately 6 p.m.
EAA, American Airlines, and Old Glory Honor Flight Inc., join forces to give veterans the opportunity to visit the powerful memorials dedicated in their honor with an Yellow Ribbon Honor Flight departing from EAA AirVenture.
On Friday morning, a special American Airlines yellow-ribbon 737 aircraft Flagship Liberty flies approximately 100 veterans from the AirVenture grounds to Washington, D.C., for a day-long tour of memorials honoring their service and the sacrifices they made.
Be among the thousands saluting these heroes as they make their emotional return - a welcome home reception that many did not receive for their service and sacrifice - at the conclusion of Friday's air show.
The Old Glory Honor Flight, Northeast Wisconsin's hub of the Honor Flight Network, recognizes veterans for sacrifices and achievements by providing a memorable, safe, and rewarding tour of Washington, D.C., memorials at no cost.
Please note: A maximum of 100 veterans will be chosen via random drawing. Event organizers expect to receive many more
applications than can be accommodated for this flight. An Old Glory Honor
Flight volunteer will contact veterans whose applications are randomly selected
by July 1, 2014.
