We at Indy Honor Flight have had the incredible privilege to meet, serve and get to know some of the most wonderful people on the planet-our country’s Veterans. We do not give lip service to our heroes, each of them know we are sincere with our respect and honor. Our complete staff is made up of unpaid volunteers who donate hundreds of hours every year (and money from our own pockets) to find, recruit and hold in absolute admiration those who have served our country. We are extremely grateful for every single person who has served wearing the cloth of our country. We also encourage our friends, families and co-workers to remember to thank those who are currently serving. The cost of freedom must continually be paid if we are to remain the pillar of democracy our republic represents.
While 2020 has given everyone some very unexpected challenges, our mission remains unchanged, our resolve to honor those who are waiting on their Honor Flight is unwavering. We continue to search for eligible Veterans and we are doing all we can to keep the Honor Flight program viable. We are anxious to fly, but only when we can properly protect our Hoosier heroes. There are plans and ideas happening behind the scenes across the nation to make this happen, please be patient, stay healthy and stay in contact with us to be aware of updates.
We have a very fun and impressive thing to tell you about; one of our therapy dogs, the ever-so-smart-and-loveable Dixie and her human, Brian, are I part of the cast of a new TV series! It is called THE PACK and it premiered on November 20th on Amazon Prime. Dixie has been quite a popular dog at many, many charity events for children and Veterans all around our Indiana and now they have travelled all around the world! The show is kind of like the Amazing Race only with dog/person teams competing. Brian and Dixie have shown their love of Veterans and have promoted IHF everywhere they have travelled. We are so happy for Dixie and Brian and wish them the very best luck with the show. We encourage everyone to watch and root for TEAM DIXIE! Click here to watch The Pack Amazon Prime – The Pack You must have a membership to Amazon Prime to watch. (IHF does not own the rights to The Pack, nor does it benefit from you buying a membership. we just think it’s cool that our Dixie is famous).
As we go through the busy Thanksgiving and Christmas season, please feel free to reach out to us with any questions you may have, or if you need a speaker for a civic group. We are also always on the lookout for updated addresses, phone numbers and such for our heroes, both those who have flown with us and those who are waiting. Our website is open 24-hours a day with information for you!
With things continuing to change in our world all of Indy Honor Flight hopes you will stay safe, healthy and happy. Please enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday and take a moment to truly give thanks for another day of life with people you love. Welcome home.
