To my card making friends…Honor Flight Columbus needs our help!
There is an Honor Flight group that needs some help! Here is the post from one of their members:
“We have recently added a surprise flight for our veterans on Sunday, November 11, 2018 (Veteran’s Day). At this time, we do not have any letters for our vets to open during “Mail Call” and are desperately in need of them (we need at least 160). If you could find it in your heart to pop a card or a quick note in the mail, it would be GREATLY appreciated. We are doing our best to serve Vietnam veterans at this time since they did not receive their deserved “Welcome Home” the first time around. If you have any questions, please let me know! THANK YOU!
The address is:
Honor Flight Columbus
Attn: Mail Call
PO BOX 12036
Columbus, OH 43212″
For those that are unfamiliar with Honor Flight Program:
“Honor Flight Network is a non-profit organization created solely to honor America’s veterans for all their sacrifices. We transport our heroes to Washington, D.C. to visit and reflect at their memorials. Top priority is given to the senior veterans – World War II survivors, along with those other veterans who may be terminally ill.
Of all of the wars in recent memory, it was World War II that truly threatened our very existence as a nation—and as a culturally diverse, free society. According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, an estimated 640 WWII veterans die each day. Our time to express our thanks to these brave men and women is running out.
I will be making a card or two to send and I hope you will too.
