HONOR FLIGHTS

I am Lana Hurt & am Secretary/Treasurer of the O & A (OK. & AR.) Honor Flight.  This is part of a national organization that takes WWII & Korean veterans to Washington D.C. FREE for the day to see their memorials.  Arkansas had their own Honor Flight but stopped doing them 4-5 years ago because of funding.  Oklahoma stopped their flights last year.  A group of people wanting to keep the Honor Flight going got busy & formed the O & A Honor Flight.  The first flight was out of XNA this past April.   We have another one scheduled for Oct. 5 out of Tulsa & these flights will continue each April & Oct.   One of the problems we are facing is there are a LOT of veterans out there that have not heard of the Honor Flight.  I was asking for your help in getting the word out to them.  The veterans can down load an application for the flight from our website: oahonorflight.org, or email me at hurt5574@hotmail.com or call me 918-326-4622.  Of course if you know of any corporation/business/individual that would want to sponsor a veteran for $500 or give any amount that would be great too! Thank you in advance for your help & thank you for your service.
