Honor Flight Low Country September 6, 2014

On Saturday, September 6th  at 7PM, 30 World War II Veterans and 60 Korean War Veterans will be returning to the Charleston International Airport following a full day of visiting their respective Memorials in Washington DC, which, for the majority of them, this will be a first .  If you find that you have some free time on that Saturday, the Honor Flight Low Country would like to invite you and as a many folks as you can muster up, to the Charleston Airport to give these Veterans the welcome home that they so greatly deserve.  With the current construction underway at the airport, it is not known just how much space or where we can fete these Veterans, but it will happen.  So, please make an effort to help make the day for these deserving Veterans.   Again, Saturday, September 6th – flight arrives at 7:11 PM.”
