April 13, 2020: Just a note from Honor flight of the Ozarks:
I know everyone is quarantining themselves at this time. And, quite frankly, we have all had better days. Please rest assured that we at HFO are also working hard to get through all of these current issues, and we are looking forward to moving forward as soon as it is safe to do so. Our primary concern is that everyone stays safe during this time.
30 years ago, we were sure society would be flying around in their cars, but in reality we are just still teaching people to wash their hands! Who knew?
Everyone stay strong and safe during this time. We will be back to our primary mission that is taking our Veterans to Washington, D.C. to see their memorials.
We will keep our Veterans, Guardians, and Volunteers up to date with changes as we are able to do so.
Honor Flight of the Ozarks
