SPRINGFIELD Ohio — The Honor Flight RVC Program, which began in 2008 as a way to transport veterans who do not wish to fly to Washington, D.C. to visit the war memorials, is planning four RV trips this year, reported New Carlisle News.
The program started in Springfield, Ohio when Mae Davis of Indiana donated a 28 foot RV.
The program was added to the Honor Flight Network, which works to make a veteran’s dream of visiting their war memorial, but lack the financial means to do so on their own, possible. The program is a way to say thank you to the veterans who served our nation.
The first trip will leave from Springfield on April 29, with 28 veterans making the journey in seven motorhomes.
More trips will be available later in the year depending on demand.
