Vietnam Era Veterans Eligible
Vietnam Era Veterans Are Now Honor Flight Columbus Senior Veterans
Veterans from World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War are on the ten-year-old organization’s log book. “When we started,” says Jim Downing, HFC president,” our goal was to get as many World War II veterans as we could to see their recently opened memorial. Thanks to the generosity of the people, organizations, and corporations of central Ohio, we are continuing with those service members and have moved into two more wars.” The backlog of applications for veterans to fly now stands at just over 1,000. The primary sponsor of this flight is Vance Outdoors.
Honor Flight Columbus is the first Hub in the Honor Flight Network which now has more than 131 Hubs in 45 states. HFC is the third Hub to surpass the milestone 5,000 Senior Veterans.
