Region 7, Region 8, Region 9

About the Mission:

Big Apple Honor Flight will send 70 Veterans off on their Honor Flight to D.C. to visit the Memorials and Monuments built in their honor.

Organizers have once again requested the participation of Patriot Guard Riders in the escort, sendoff and welcome home for veterans traveling to Washington DC as part of the Honor Flight Network. As we have done in the past with BAHF, PGR riders will escort the veterans from the staging point at Resorts World New York City to LaGuardia International Airport, where the sendoff will take place. We have also been asked to welcome our honored veterans back home that evening. Please see details in Stage Two of this mission posting below.
