Honor Flight needs donations
In the past, it’s been a life changing event for many veterans who have participated.
Honor Flight of Oregon plans to fly World War II and Korean War vets on Sept. 14 to 16 to see their memorials in Washington, D.C. The cost to send each vet is approximately $1,000. (Guardians and medical personnel who accompany them pay their own way.)
This notification is sent in hopes that readers will consider contributing toward this trip while vets of those wars, now in their mid-80s to over 90 are still physically able to travel.
The majority of the board of directors for Honor Flight of Oregon are Non Commissioned Officers Association (NCOA) members from the Rogue Chapter. We need to pay for this flight in August.
Every little bit helps, so please consider making a donation. Write a check payable to Rogue Chapter NCOA and put “Honor Flight “in the comments section (100 percent of your donation will help a vet get to Washington, D.C.). Kindly mail contributions to Rogue Chapter #1260 NCOA, PO Box 5597, Central Point, OR 97502.
Thank you in advance for your compassionate consideration.
Terry M. Haines, NCOA chairman, Rogue Chapter #1260
