Mayor talks with HonorAir veterans
Mayor Rogero and Mayor Burchett talk with HonorAir veterans before the flight.

April 16, 2014 - When the HonorAir flight lands tonight, the organization will have successfully completed 16 flights taking over 2,000 East Tennessee World War II and Korean War veterans to Washington, D.C. to see the memorials built to honor their sacrifices.

The flight will return this evening and the public is encouraged to welcome the returning veterans at McGhee Tyson Airport at 8 p.m. Arrive early!

HonorAir Knoxville is a program established and presented by Prestige Cleaners to honor veterans. Covenant Health has been a major sponsor of each of the flights taken to date.

128 veterans are on today's flight. After walking through a special Honor Guard, the veterans received a send-off at McGhee Tyson Airport in which Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero and Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett participated.

The one-day, all expense paid trip via a US Airways chartered flight includes tours of the World War II, Korean War, Vietnam War, Marine and Air Force Memorials.

Veterans interested in applying for a flight can print the application available at www.honorairknoxville.com or call 865-938-7702 and request an appliation be mailed to them.

Future HonorAir Knoxville flights will be dependent on the level of funding the program receives from the community. Each flight costs about $60,000. HonorAir is a 501 (c)(3) organization so all donations are tax deductible. Anyone wishing to support the program should send checks to HonorAir Knoxville, 7536 Taggart Lane, Knoxville, TN 37938. Donations can also be made via PayPal on the HonorAir Knoxville website at www.honorairknoxville.com.
