In Service to God and Country
2015 Honor Flight
"Serving Those Who Served"

Please disseminate and encourage all Knights, Squires, and  LA, to take part in this wonderful over due welcoming home of our Veterans, as they return from seeing their Memorials in Washington DC.  Dayton Chapter started 2014 with 5 Knights from one Assembly, and grew to having 15 Knights, 2 Marshall and 1CC, on line in Regalia welcoming home the last flight of Veterans in 2014.  Veterans Pass In Review, some in wheel chairs, others walking with assistance, and those with a not so steady stride-head held high, walking to the beat of the AF Band Drum.  As they pass each group on line, you will not see a dry eye in the Corridor. This is a very Patriotic way for the Knights of Columbus, to Honor and show our Support to the Veterans. Once you have taken part in the Honor Flights Welcoming Home, you will return to support another scheduled flight. Thank you for all you do for our Veterans.
