Mission 19 September 30, 2014 from Lakeland Linder Airport
Honor Flight of West Central Florida (HFWCF) was established in late 2010 as an official Regional Hub of the National Honor Flight Network. As part of the Network, HFWCF provides all expense paid flights for World War II Veterans in the Tampa Bay area to visit their memorials in Washington, D.C. In 2011, our inaugural year, with significant support from corporate sponsors and individual donors, we completed 4 Missions and in 2012, we completed 4 additonal Missions. In 2013,we completed 7 additional Missions. We just completed Mission 17 on May 27, 2014.
To date HFWCF has flown 1256 Veterans to D.C.to see their Memorials!
With an estimated 32,000 WWII Veterans living in the West Central Florida area, we have a huge challenge. We need continued support from grateful Americans like yourselves, and the generous participation of area corporations to honor these World War II Veterans with a tour to D.C. in the manner they deserve.
To continue our flights, your donations are key! Also, if you have time to volunteer, HFWCF can use your help. Your energy helps the thousands of local Veterans to enjoy their Honor Flight.
PRIORITY - - Top priority is given to WWII Veterans and terminally ill Veterans that have not yet visited their memorial. Next priority will be Korean War Veterans, then Vietnam Veterans and continue in chronological order of conflict. They all have given so much and it is time we show them that their efforts are not forgotten. Please consider donating, volunteering, and/or accompanying a Veteran to D.C. as their Guardian. It will be a lifetime memory for you.
