Mission 12 Scheduled for September 17, 2013
Please join us for the Welcome Home, 8:30pm at St Pete/Clearwater Airport
(bring a folding chair in case flight is delayed)
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 taking 241 WWII Veterans to Washington D.C. In 2012, we completed 4 additonal Missions. We have just completed our 11th Mission in June 2013!
To date HFWCF has flown 782 WWII Veterans to D.C.
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.
In the future, we will pay tribute to America's other heroes, those who served during the Korean, Vietnam, and Gulf Wars. They, too, 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.
