Board of Directors
After my first flight as a Guardian, I was so impressed with how the Veterans were treated…like Rock Stars….and the efficiency and professionalism that this team brings to each flight and each Veteran, I was hooked. I made the decision that I had to do something to help make this happen for other Veterans and other Guardians.It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Because this is a 100% volunteer organization, I liked knowing that 100% of my efforts for this cause was going towards "keeping them flying” !
I became a volunteer with Honor Flight to thank and acknowledge our Veterans for their service. To see the community support nationwide for our organization has continued to amaze me and contributes to making our Veterans special day all the more special.
I am proud to be a part of this great team of volunteers. I feel that I am honoring my Dad, a humble WWII Army veteran who never got to see the WWII memorial, by giving my time to this outstanding cause. It's an absolute honor to walk and talk with 'history' - the men and ladies who sacrificed to serve our grand country.
Patriotism runs deep in my family. My grandfather fought in France during WWI. My father was a WWII veteran and went on an Honor Flight. It was a day of extraordinary experiences that he cherished for the rest of his life. My husband and I are veterans, and our son is serving now. I love honoring our nation's veterans through being involved in our local hub.
I have seen the graves of our soldiers in Normandy; I have talked with frontline Medal of Honor recipients and behind-the-scenes mess cooks; I have met those without freedom; I have seen those who possess it who do not even fathom the gift. It all says to me, Treasure Your Freedom. Honor Flight is a way to do that. Honor Flight allows me the opportunity to continually thank those who have laid down their lives for our Nation and our freedom. Besides honoring our veterans, I love seeing how Honor Flight touches the lives of all those involved.

I went on a Honor Flight and loved everything about it. I was looking to get involved with an organization that honored our veterans and went to a meeting. I was so impressed with how business was conducted and the dedication of the Board, and knew this was where I wanted to be involved and I have zero regrets. The relationships that are forged, with both veterans and volunteers, are priceless.
Served Southeast Florida Honor Flight from 2009 to 2019.
I joined Honor Flight in 2009 as guardian. My first veteran went ashore at Omaha Beach on D-Day. Spending that day with him changed my life and Honor Flight became a calling. We live in a wonderful country - our military veterans make it all possible. I just wanted to thank as many of them as possible.
