Board of Directors

Our Fort Wayne hub was founded by Laura Carrico in 2008 after she heard of the Honor Flight organization and wanted to take her World War II father to Washington.  With her help and determination, more willing people stepped up to help here and now you have a group of over 35 people working hard to get our men and women veterans to Washington D.C.   There is the primary board of directors and then we also have a special volunteer corps.   Our board and volunteer corps. is made up of 100% volunteers, no paid positions. Many of our board members are veterans themselves.
