“This is one experience that I personally will never forget, patriotism in its purest form. People will often tell you of things that they have done that you should experience once in your lifetime like going to Las Vegas, helicopter rides or skydiving. My suggestion is to attend a Homecoming of our Veterans on the next Stars and Stripes Honor Flight.”
— Michelle after attending our November 6, 2010 Homecoming at Mitchell Airport
Please put a hold on your letters until further notice. (Unless you are asked to write to a specific veteran.) As we transition our program to also serve Korean War veterans we are making some changes to our Mail Call procedures. Thank you for your patience.
One of the highlights of a Stars and Stripes Honor Flight is the surprise Mail Call we package for every veteran on the flight home.
While most mail is from the family and friends of the veteran, some mail is simply written to honor a veteran you may not know, but would like to thank for their service.
If you would like to organize a letter writing campaign for an upcoming flight, please contact us and put “Mail Call Request” in the subject line.
