Although their original departure was set for September 23, tropical storm threats have postponed the Honor Flight to April 20, 2024. “Our veterans want to have a day they will never forget,” said Diana Deen Pry on behalf of the Honor Flight Dayton Board. “We take the safety of our veterans very seriously and do not want to compromise the well-being of any of the veterans on the trip.”

UPDATE: Five additional residents are planning to depart on the April 20th Honor Flight! A welcome home reception & happy hour is scheduled for residents on April 26th from 3-4pm.
