Grateful for the experience

To Flag City Honor Flight:

I would like to personally thank you and your staff for all the hard work and long hours you have committed in order to put veterans in the spotlight to honor them for a day. I did not know how much it really means to a veteran until I experienced the Honor Flight myself. I could not have picked a better Guardian myself. Hilda Dunn was very courteous, kind and personable. She made me feel really relaxed and kept me focused the entire day. They are a key factor in this trip. I was up and active for more than 24 hours straight that day and I still had a hard time getting to sleep after I got home because everything that happened during the trip kept racing in my mind. It was an absolutely unforgettable, amazing day. Thank you, Flag City Honor Flight.

I am commander at Tiffin VFW Post 2858. I shared my day with some of our members in our post meeting and told them the cost for each Honor Flight was $84,000, and that is made possible only from donations they receive from various businesses and individual sponsors. A motion was made and approved to donate $1,000 toward the Flag City Honor Flight. We, as a veteran’s organization, cannot thank you enough for what you are doing to honor our veterans and give them that special day of recognition that they will remember for as long as they live. Many have never received any type of recognition. This makes it even more special.

Jack Noller, commander,
