This is an awesome opportunity for women veterans in the Cincinnati Tri-State area. Seriously! If you are a woman veteran under 40, you should consider being a guardian…can you imagine the experience you’d have touring the memorials with these trailblazing women that we only heard about.
Women veterans who are interested in the flight can visit www.honorflighttristate.org or call (513)277-9626.
For the past eight years, Honor Flight Tri-State has flown hundreds of male military veterans to visit Washington, D.C. memorials free of charge.
On September 22, the Cincinnati-based nonprofit is lifting off with the first ever all women veterans’ flight, marking its own historic event.
“Some would say that they wish more women were on the flight,” Honor Flight Director Cheryl Popp said. “No one ever really thought about having a flight for just women veterans – until now. The Tri-State flight will be the first of its kind in the nation.” News about the flight went out in early April and applications are already being submitted, Popp said.
