Lest we forget…Armed Forces Day

 

Thank you to all that serve

Take out your flag and raise it high for all to see, for today is Armed Forces Day.

“ARMED FORCES DAY. … On August 31, 1949, Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson announced the creation of an Armed Forces Day to replace separate Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force Days. The single day celebration stemmed from the unification of the Armed Forces under the Department of Defense.”

We must never forget those who serve and the price they and their families pay.

angel flights

The Angels for Armed Forces® program provides free flights to military personnel and veterans, who need to access medical care.  It also provides flights for military family members who need to travel to visit injured service members and whose financial resources do not permit them to travel by commercial airlines.

These flights are conducted by AFNE volunteer pilots, many being veterans themselves, who share not only a love of flying, but also have a deep commitment to helping others. They donate their time, their airplanes, all expenses of the flight, and mostly, their hearts to serve their community and those in need.

Angel Flight NE entered into a memorandum of understanding with the USO in 2010 to mutually promote the Angels for Armed Forces® program.
