“We can't all be heroes, because somebody has to sit on the curb and applaud when they go by." ... Will Rogers


 

Organizing a flight of 25 vets and 25 guardians to DC is more complicated than it looks.  There are endless administrative details keeping track of applications, events, sponsors, finances, flight details, the flight manifest, local bus details, DC Tour bus details, meals enroute, and all the other activities necessary for this to work.  Many of the admin support tasks are relatively simple but nothing we do is unimportant and everything contributes to making this a once-in-a-lifetime experience for our vets.  Examples where you might be able to help include:

  • Finance - organize donor information and prepare monthly submissions for the web site

  • VHF Club:  enhance our database (Excel spreadsheet) of volunteers to more completely understand where our volunteers wish to assist Honor Flight. This would include calling some volunteers to see where their interests and backgrounds are

  • proof reading correspondence

  • stuffing envelopes

  • calling vets and guardians to verify that we have received their application

  • assisting in transportation issues

  • assisting in preflight meetings

  • assisting in the organization of fund raisers

  • assisting in the organization of presentations
