While Honor Flight Arizona Takes a Pause, We Take Time to Look Back
by Rick Hardina, Honor Flight President
Memories of special times spent with some very special people
As most friends of Honor Flight Arizona have heard, our flights have currently been suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak. Although we had hoped to resume our 3-day journeys of thanks and remembrance by early 2021, we have been advised by our Honor Flight National Board of Directors that Spring flights may not be likely.
Noting the age of many of our World War II and Korean War Veterans (in their 80’s and 90’s), we do not want to take any unnecessary chances with regard to their health during our trips to their memorials in Washington, D.C.
It is hoped that we will be able to resume our mission later in 2021, but again we will have to await the go-ahead from Honor Flight Network.
Veterans and Guardians awaiting future trips can expect to be advised by phone of their flight/trip details approximately two months prior to departure.
In the meantime, we would like to take this opportunity to take you on a brief look back to a few of the thousands and thousands of memories we have shared together over the years here at Honor Flight Arizona….
In consideration of the CDC guidelines and the serious nature of the public threat posed by COVID-19, the Honor Flight Network has suspended all scheduled Honor Flight trips for the remainder of calendar-year 2020.
