This year is the tenth anniversary of Honor Flight Northern Colorado. In our decade of operation we will have taken almost 3000 Veterans, including
1200 from WWII back to Washington D.C. Our founding mission was and is to take WWII Veterans, those who saved this nation and possibly the world,
back to see the Memorial, completed in 2004, to honor them. And to do it as quickly as possible, before this "greatest generation" passed. Ladies
and gentlemen, to quote COL Stan Cass, "Mission accomplished!” Stan was our Founder and President for the past 10 years. He declared mission
accomplished at our February 28th board meeting as he proposed to the board that the September 2018 Honor Flight be our final flight. The board
adopted this proposal, without dissent, at the next meeting. Therefore the September 9-10, 2018 Honor Flight will be the last flight for Honor Flight
Northern Colorado. COL Cass was in apparent good health at the time of this decision and we are deeply saddened that he will not be on that last
flight! The last flight will be the COL Stan Cass Memorial Flight.
We are extremely fortunate to live in Northern Colorado as we have the support and trust of thousands of individuals, groups, businesses and companies. We are an all volunteer effort with only private donations. These supporters have contributed huge amounts of effort and money to make this happen. I cannot think of any other area that would be so generous. You have made Honor Flight Northern Colorado the most successful Honor Flight in the Country. We have the added achievement of taking 800 Korean War Veterans and 700 Vietnam War Veterans back to see their Memorials. Considering we operate from a much less populated area than most Hubs we can all be proud of what we have accomplished. We need your continued support to complete our task for the deserving Veterans on this and the September Flights. They depend on it. I speak for all the Honor Flight Veterans in thanking all of you who make this happen. I think we can all agree that Honor Flight Northern Colorado has made many people's lives better and has made Northern Colorado a better place.
