About the Talons flight

Providing all expense paid trips to Washington D.C. for our WWII, Korean War and terminally ill veterans from all conflicts to visit the memorials built in their honor
n Since October 26, 2013, Talons Out has successfully flown 920 veterans to Washington D.C. on
“One Last Mission”.
n Veterans have a day they will never forget and many say it was the best day they’ve ever had besides their wedding day and the day their children were born
n Fire Trucks, police/sherriff cars, emergency vehicles and Patriot Guard riders escort our veterans
from Kalamazoo Aiport to their surprise homecoming venue. Portage Road is temporarily shut down
during the homecoming parade which was almost a mile long.
n Approximately 100 military, police, firefighting and patriot guard personnel come out to welcome home our veterans
n 2,500-3,000 members of the community come out to welcome home our heroes.
n Homecoming is scheduled for 8:30 pm. Homecoming attendees begin arriving at 7:00 pm to reserve their place in the parade line up.
n Our waiting crowd listens to local entertainment, makes welcome home signs and shares stories of their loved ones.
n Most veterans have 10-20 family members in attendance at the homecoming.
99 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to getting our Veterans to D.C.
As each flight is funded, we will immediately schedule the next.
Our goal is to send (4) flights per year.
Next flights are being scheduled for:
September 15, 2018
October 27, 2018
Since May of 2005, the Honor Flight Network has flown over 200,000 veterans to Washington D.C. at No Cost to the veteran. All funds are generated from grass roots efforts through community donations and corporate sponsors.
