October 2019 Events

Operation Honor Flight-Day of Giving to Veterans

Oct 10, 2019 06:00 AM to Oct 10, 2019 06:00 PM

 Honor Flight- Helping veterans remember and reflect.

 

Members of the United States military commit to a life of service, dedication, and sacrifice. As citizens of the nation they so nobly defend, it is imperative that we continue to support and honor them throughout their lives.

 

 These heroes have earned the right to visit the memorials erected in Washington D.C. to honor them, their service, and their place in our nation’s history.

 

Butler Funeral Homes & Cremation Tribute Center and Land of Lincoln Honor Flight have partnered to conduct the Operation Honor Flight Day of Giving to raise money and provide assistance to our local Honor Flight and the veterans they serve.

 

The mission of Land of Lincoln Honor Flight is to provide round trip transportation from Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport in Springfield, Illinois for veterans in order of their service (WWII, Korean Era and Vietnam Era) who wish to visit their memorials in Washington, D.C.

 

This one day trip includes both air and ground transportation, meals and snacks, t-shirt and cap, and other items provided completely free of charge to the veteran in honor of his/her service to our country.

 

All expenses for these day trips are the sole responsibility of Land of Lincoln Honor Flight and administered completely by volunteer support.
