TALONS OUT HONOR FLIGHT


Congratulations to George Guritz on his trip to Washington D.C. on the Talons Honor Flight. World War II veterans have priority on flights and if room Korean Veterans can go.


The trip is FREE for the Veterans but costs the Guardian $500. If you would like to donate to our Talons Flight Guardian Fund you may send it to the above Post 68 address "ATTN: Talons Flight Guardian Fund". In the MEMO area on your check be sure to enter Talons, Flight Guardian Fund.   Any donation toward this fund is very helpful.


Need help in signing up for a Talon Flight contact Bob Adams. Information required for application is the nearest relative, contact person for emergencies, a list of medications, and a copy of discharge. You can also have a family member go as a guardian. A guardian is a person that will care for you for the day. A wheelchair will be provided if it is necessary.
