RIAFC Honor Flight Hub
Honor Flight Bravo is in the books. What a fantastic day for the 42 WWII veterans who came on the flight. In total we left RI with 92 people and picked up 8 active military service people who volunteered to help us out in Washington. We were also lucky enough to have Channel 10 cameraman Bob Farrell with us for the entire day. Holly Susi took all the pictures and Bob documented the the day in video. Channel 10 did a great news story, that can be seen on their website and we are looking forward to the final video project that may air on channel 10 around Memorial Day. We could not be more pleased with everyones efforts and are so proud to have been a part of these amazing WWII veterans special day to see their memorials in Washington DC. Thanks to all who played a part in RIAFC Honor Flight Bravo.
