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

Villages Honor Flight currently covers 5 counties in Central Florida and unless new Honor Flight hubs are established, will eventually expand north as far as Gainesville and St. Augustine.  An area that large is not effectively covered by a group centered in Lady Lake.  We wish to establish satellites in all major towns and cities to organize activities in those areas and involve the local communities.

Initially, the satellites will "spread the word" about Honor Flight generally and Villages Honor Flight (and other Central Florida hubs) in particular.  The basic goals being:

  • to ensure that every WW2 vet in the area knows about Honor Flight and the opportunity to fly with us (or another hub) to DC;

  • that potential guardians know about Honor Flight and the amazing experience being a guardian can be;

  • to involve the local community in supporting Honor Flight and the local vets.  

Eventually satellites could function as mini-hubs and handle some of the routine logistics associated with missions.  And finally, it may be more effective to "take the hub to the vets" and have flights organized around geographical areas.
