Arlington, Va.— An all-women Honor Flight trip will tour the newly re-opened Military Women’s Memorial at the gates of Arlington National Cemetery on June 1, 12 p.m. – 2 p.m. The 109 women veterans will travel from Orlando, Fla. with Villages Honor Flight, the local hub of the Honor Flight Network that has brought more than a quarter million veterans to see the national memorials built in their honor. The veterans on this trip will be among the first to see the Memorial since it re-opened to the public on May 27 after six months of renovations.
INDIANAPOLIS — The American Legion Auxiliary (ALA) and Honor Flight Network are proud to announce a partnership that will support essential caregivers of Honor Flight participants.
2021-2022 ALA National President Kathy Daudistel has placed focus on uplifting caregivers, especially those of military and veterans. Daudistel is extending this support by promoting caregiver assistance for veterans participating on an Honor Flight trip. This support, funded by donations through the ALA’s poppy program, will help offset the cost of a veteran’s caregiver to accompany the veteran on his or her Honor Flight as they provide essential services such as assistance with the veteran’s activities of daily living or ADL’s.
