First ever Female Honor Flight


Honor Flight Network is a nonprofit that provides trips to veterans to see the memorials in Washington D.C. September 22, 2015 was a historic day. The first ever all Female Flight left from Cincinnati. From WCPO:CINCINNATI – Dorothy Kist has been to Washington, D.C., before, but never quite like this.On Tuesday, at 8 a.m. sharp, she was one of 140-plus aboard an Honor Flight bound for the capital city from the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. As par for the course, all passengers on the flight were veterans. But, for the first time ever, all those veterans are women.It's an historic moment for Honor Flight and Honor Flight Tri-State, a hub of the national non-profit that's worked since 2005 to transport military veterans to their respective war memorials in D.C. Flights – there's five day-long trips from CVG each year – traditionally only charter former service members age 65 and older, and no local flight has ever included more than five women vets at a time, Cheryl Popp, Honor Flight Tri-State director, said.See the rest of the story from WCPO.https://youtu.be/689JrNOVRRIFor more information about the Honor Flight Network go to HonorFlight.org or find them on Facebook.[mwi-cat-listing cat="94" ppp="4" cols="4" desc="false" type="view" btn_color="black" ]
