CMHF Announces Kick Off of 2015 Flight Season
Central Missouri Honor Flight has announced that the first flight for 2015 will be on Monday, April 20. This flight will be CMHF’s 32nd flight and marks the start of its 7th flight season. Formed in 2009, this all volunteer non-profit organization has transported over 1900 deserving veterans to Washington, D.C. to see their memorials at no cost to them.
Since CMHF’s inception, first priority has been given to WWII veterans due to their age, followed by Korea War veterans and Vietnam War veterans. The last several flights have included veterans from all three conflicts.
Approximately 70 veterans will be on the April flight while more than 300 presently exist on waiting lists with those numbers increasing daily.
Central Missouri Honor Flight has been graciously supported by organizations and individuals throughout Central Missouri who have wished to ensure that these great Americans receive the thanks and recognition they so richly deserve. Should you wish support this mission by contributing financially so that additional flights can occur, please send your donations to: Central Missouri Honor Flight, 1400 Forum Blvd. Ste. 1-C, Box 334, Columbia, MO 65203
