Woodbridge, VA (PRWEB) September 18, 2013
On September 12, 2013, the Honor Flight Network welcomed veterans of foreign wars to Washington D.C. The USAE-S Command serving Fort Belvoir, VA showed their support to the arriving men and women who have given so much to our Freedoms by giving them a coin of honor as they arrived.
Belvoir Federal Credit Union showed their support to the Honor Flight event by donating the funds to purchase the honor coins. Sharon Leake, Belvoir Federal’s Installation Liaison, stated “Being able to give back to Fort Belvoir organizations, such as the Honor Flight, is a tremendous honor for our credit union. We understand the sacrifices these veterans took to provide us our freedom and we wanted to show our appreciation for their service.”
“We (the USAE-S) chose the Honor Flight due to its significance of honoring those who have honored our nation and its way of life. This is something we started at Walter Reed and we will continue that tradition here at Fort Belvoir,” stated CSM Tom Craig, USAE-S TRP CMD at Fort Belvoir, VA.
Honor Flight Network is a non-profit organization created solely to honor America’s veterans for all their sacrifices. The Network transports veterans to Washington D.C. to visit and reflect at their memorials. For more information regarding the Honor Flight Network, visit http://www.honorflight.com.
