Local Sarasota residents are working with Honor Flight® of West Central Florida (HFWCF) to raise donations to finance ‘Mission 22’ – an all expense-paid day for 80 World War II Veterans in our area to visit the war memorials in Washington, D.C on June 23, 2015. With 300+ local World War II Veterans averaging 91 years of age on the Honor Flight waiting list, time is of the essence to ensure the heroes whose sacrifice gave us a lifetime of freedom get to enjoy a day dedicated to honoring them.  Honor Flight Network is a non-profit organization dedicated to flying Veterans to Washington D.C. to visit and reflect at the memorials built to honor their service to the nation. Top priority is given to World War II survivors, along with other Veterans who may be terminally ill.  Donations may be made through the Honor Flight West Central Florida website (hyperlink http://www.honorflightwcf.org/donate-today.html) or by mailed check to Honor Flight of West Central Florida, P.O. Box 55661, St. Petersburg, FL 33732. Please make sure to specify ‘Mission 22’ in your donation or via email to info@honorflightwcf.org. To nominate a Veteran for Honor Flight and for additional information on local Honor Flight Mission 22 fundraisers or ways to help, please contact  Britt Riner at brittriner@gmail.com or Melissa Fox-Howard at mfox80@hotmail.com. HFWCF was established in late 2010 as an official Regional Hub of the National Honor Flight Network and has flown 1,415 Veterans to D.C. to see their Memorials and Honored 27 Veterans at home who are unable n to travel.
