2021 Flight Update
**COVID 19 Update September 2021**
Dear Veterans & Guardians,
After much discussion and thought,
we as an organization, have decided to postpone
the flight this fall.
Several factors went in to our decision, first and foremost
being the health and safety of our veterans. Due to the
rise inCOVID cases and the Delta variant in our area,
our priority is to ensure our veterans and guardians
have the safest trip possible. Although we would
require proof of vaccinations for all that would
attend the trip, we feel we could not guarantee
the safest experience.
Secondly, we have a large group of
Korean War veterans. The Korean War Veterans Memorial
is closed for renovations and repairs. We want all of our
veterans to have the trip of a life time and
this would significantly reduce the impact of their trip.
A third and deciding factor for our decision is
our day is packed with visiting several of the
memorials andmonuments. We rely on the vehicle
escorts of the Park Police to maneuver our coach buses
around the city of Washington DC. We were not able to confirm/secure their services for a trip. This would
significantly impact what we feel would be a successful
mission and trip of a life time for our veterans.
We are now working on securing a date
for a spring flight and we will keep you updated
as we progress.
To all - stay safe and healthy.
