Help Us Reach Our Veterans!

(July 2, 2019) Once again - we are honored to be able to use the power of WANE to get our message out in a unique format - different from regular "commercial time".

In partnership with WANE 15, Honor Flight Northeast Indiana will part of an hour long salute and Thank you to area veterans.  Alyssa Ivanson and Pat Hoffmann  (WANE 15 Morning Anchors) will once again host the show.  They will visit with area veterans and help tell their stories, revisited stories from past Honor Flights all in an effort to help show the veterans of our community - what Honor Flight is and that "It's time to sign up".  Honor Flight Northeast Indiana will host 8 segments during the show highlighting partnerships with area businesses, interviews with veterans, information about our virtual reality program for those physically unable to travel as well as a few other great moments and messages from our area veterans.

 

A Call Out To Our Veterans!

This special "show" first and foremost a call to action to our veterans of the area who have not yet signed up for an Honor Flight.  Their time is NOW!  Please don't hesitate.  There are too many veterans that think "It's not my time" or "I don't deserve to go".  Those are false assumptions.  If they served in uniform - then they are eligible to go.  They did not have to serve during battle, in theater, etc.  Even if they served stateside during their entire enlistment - they are still fully eligible for an honor flight.

This show is basically our "big voice" our chance to tell the story of why WWII and Korean veterans need to sign up now!  Believe it or not - there are still living WWII veterans in the area that have not gone!  There are Korean veterans in our area that actually have not heard of Honor Flight.  HELP US SPREAD THE WORD.

 

We can't say Thank you enough for your consideration.  We hope you'll watch this years show.  it will air ON VETERANS DAY, Monday November 11th, 2019 from 7 pm -  8 pm on WANE 15 (CBS) in the Fort Wayne area.  We will make it available that night on YouTube for those outside our TV viewing area.  There will be a viewing party again at the American Legion Post 160 in Roanoke IN.
