Colorado Springs- Please join us this Saturday, July 21st at 7am for our 2nd Annual Pancake Breakfast at Applebee’s Restaurant, 7625 Goddard Street, Colorado Springs.
Join KVOR 740am and Jeff Crank as he will be broadcasting live from Applebee’s and assisting us with inviting the community to help us send our WWII veterans on the trip of their lifetime.
Honor Flight of Southern Colorado is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization created solely to honor America’s Veterans for all their sacrifices. Honor Flight transports our heroes to Washington, D.C. to visit and reflect at their memorials. Top priority is given to the senior Veterans who may be terminally ill.
Of all the wars in recent memory, it was World War II that truly threatened our very existence as a nation-and as a culturally diverse, free society.
Our first inaugural flight this past June was a wonderful experience. We were able to honor 12 WWII veterans on an exciting trip that we hope to give our other veterans on our extensive waiting list.
In early July, we lost one of our veterans just this last week due to congenital heart failure, Mr. John Bledsoe. His laughter and his service to our Country will never be forgotten. View his tribute here: https://vimeo.com/45351677
Please join us, along with El Paso County Commissioners Amy Lathen and Peggy Littleton, and City Council Member, Bernie Herpin as they serve you a delicious breakfast with all proceeds going to HFSOCO!
