VFW Post 6281 Metcalfe County Kentucky Honor Flight Program

I just want to ask all post commanders , to do there best to raise monies for Honor Flight before it is to late .Time is running out for our heroes WW I I Veterans . Here in Kentucky we had to cancel a flight because of lack of funds . This should never happen . We owe these Guys this .I will admit when I came home from Vietnam they did not give us the respect we should have got and we never fit in with them because we lost the war .
Later on they realized we did not lose nothing and they started to except us now they are our best friends . Just think if they had not fought and won we would be under the German or Japenese Impire today , there is only twice that the enemy has entered American soil W.W. I I and the war on Terror 9/11/ 2009 .

We all as Veterans have done our job now it is time to pay these guys back . With the Honor Flight and as soon as possible and a Welcome home all for all returning Iraq and Afgan. vets .

I want to thank Our Senior Vice Commander and District 8 Commander Charles Costello who in the last two weeks has collected over $ 6000.00 and more to come for Honor Flight just by going to individuals and bussinesses in our small town of about 1500 people , If he can do it here just imagine what you guys can do in a town of over 700,000 just a dollar or two will help .

Once we get all the WW II veterans taken to D.C. They will work on Korean Vets , and Vietnam Vets to see their Memmorial only if we can stay sucessful it is up to us .

Thanks ,

District Commader Charles Costello 8th District Kentucky has collected over $10,000.00 now and continues to do so just in a small community Edmonton Ky. , we all can do the same . The August Flight that was once canceled is now two for August , Commader Costello was not the only one , but he helped greatly , a special thanks goes to Brian Duffy without him none of this could be possible also those who reached deep in their pockets and gave .Thanks from all of us .
