I would like to give a special thanks to Dee and Viki and everyone at the TAA for overall coordination with our group and for setting up alternate parking arrangements due to the solar panel construction project. Also a special thanks to Roy and Linda with American Airlines for their spirited cooperation with the Honor Flight Program.
Thanks again to the southern Arizona organizations and business for your help in getting our Veterans to Washington DC. We would also like to express our sincere thanks to everyone who has made a donation to Honor Flight Southern Arizona this year. Your generosity has enabled us to send these vets on their well-deserved trip. And also, we cannot forget the amazing volunteers of Honor Flight Southern Arizona who make these events and fundraisers happen. What a special group of people - all working together for a common goal.
