M17

28-Feb-2015

 

Mission 17 was our second Flightless Honor Flight held at the local American Legion Post and at Eisenhower Recreation Center on Saturday, 28-Feb-2015.  15 Vets and 15 guardians participated.  A brief overview of the program can be found here

Send Off and Home Coming are held at more reasonable times during the day (approx 10AM and 3PM respectively, both at the American Legion Post at Rte 466 & Rolling Acres Road) so local involvement at Send Off and Home Coming is easier than on regular missions when Send Off is at 3AM and Home Coming is at 11PM 

All activities are held locally so there are additional opportunities for local involvement:

meet-and-greet at Orlando Airport (flight arrives back from DC) will be simulated at Eisenhower Rec Center at approx 2:40 PM
