While it is only mid-September, the Ground Crew is already gearing up for a busy week starting on October 3rd.
On Monday morning, we have another flight from Never Forgotten Honor Flight (Wausau, WI) arriving at 10:00 am. In the afternoon, we have Inland Northwest Honor Flight (Spokane, WA) arriving at 4:30 pm. As soon as they are settled on their buses and off to their visit, we have the Never Forgotten buses coming back to the airport at 7:30 pm.
Then on Tuesday, we have Quad Cities Honor Flight arriving at 10:00 am. In the afternoon, we have Inland Northwest returning to the airport at 4:30 pm followed by Quad Cities at 7:30 pm.
Then the BIG event of the week is Stars & Stripes returning with THREE planes on Saturday morning. This is their “Flight of Champions” with two planes coming from Milwaukee and one plane from Green Bay. On board with the veterans will be player and management representatives from the Bucks, Packers, and Brewers. They arrive at 8:30, 9:15, and 10:15 am. The buses return at 5:30, 6:15, and 7:15 pm.
We hope that you can join us to greet all the veterans from these four Honor Flight locations. Each arrival/departure is sure to be memorable for every veteran coming for their day of honor.
