HOTH Mission

Buffalo-Niagara Honor Flight, Veteran

USA, USN, USMC, USCG, USAF - WWII, Korea

MULTI-CITY, New York - 06 May 2017


ABOUT THE MISSION:

Those of you who participated last year in the renewed Buffalo-Niagara Honor Flight know what a thrill and honor it was to escort the Heroes to the Airport, and later welcome them home from their exciting and memorable flight to Washington D.C. These 45 \ Veterans and their Guardians are treated to a day unlike any other as they visit their Memorials, often for the first time. They are treated like Rock Stars everywhere they go. We had great turnouts for these Missions last year....let's try to duplicate it this coming Saturday!
