Say thank you to local area veterans by sending them on a life-changing trip to see their memorials in Washington D.C.
KCMQ’s Central Missouri Honor Flight Radiothon with Diamond Pet Foods was a huge success raising:
You can still make an online donation all through the weekend at the link below to boost that $79, 982.74!
The Central Missouri Honor Flight takes veterans on a non- stop day trip to Washington D.C. where they’ll tour their war memorials at no cost to them!
These trips can be trans-formative for veterans who have been struggling with their experiences during war. Many have been able to find closure and finally put to rest many of the burdens they’ve carried with them for decades. It’s also an opportunity to give many of these veterans the ‘welcome home’ they should have gotten but didn’t receive.
The COVID-19 pandemic has grounded all Honor Flights for this year. Unfortunately, it has also canceled many of the other fundraising events that the Honor Flight depends on. The waiting list of veterans has continued to grow during this time and with your help, we can help fund flights to serve our veterans as soon as these trips can resume.
To further honor our veterans, we invite you to share a picture of a special veteran in your life to our Wall of Honor! For every picture uploaded $1.00 will be donated thanks to The Village of Bedford Walk! Upload your picture here.
