Avitus Group Sends 3 WWII Veterans on Rocky Mountain Honor Flight

Look around you; we are the products of their [WWII Veterans] brave effort to make this world a better place to live in. Please come join us in welcoming home our veterans.

“These veterans fought in the greatest World War and against communism, secured peace in the world, came home, got married and raised a family. Look around you; we are the products of their brave effort to make this world a better place to live in. Please come join us in welcoming home our veterans. When they initially came back from the war, many received little to no welcome or acknowledgement, so we want to make this really special to thank them for all of the sacrifices they made for our country and freedom, ” says Rocky Mountain Honor Flight Vice President Cliff Fejfar.

"It's a humbling experience to shake a WWII veteran’s hand and thank them for their service and sacrifice. We hope to see the entire community at DIA to help us give our veterans the heroes' welcome home they deserve," says President of Avitus Payroll Services, Inc. and Avitus Business Services, Inc. and Navy veteran Ken Balster.

Avitus Group, a company with corporate headquarters in the Denver Metro area that helps simplify, strengthen and grow other businesses by taking responsibility for necessary, yet burdensome administrative tasks, like payroll, accounting and human resources, is meeting the Rocky Mountain Honor Flight team at DIA May 21st to welcome home the Rocky Mountain Honor Flight. The flight departs May 19th and returns on the 21st at 7:20 p.m. on SouthWest flight #3570 from Baltimore. Team Avitus Group is set to meet in the main concourse starting at 7:00 p.m. and will hand out American flags to wave to the first 50 people who join the welcome home team. Anyone from the community is invited. Avitus Group is also welcoming home Business Development Manager Chris Balster, who is volunteering as a guardian on the honor flight.

“It is such an honor to have been asked to participate as a guardian on this trip. My grandfather is a 94-year-old Army Air Corps WWII veteran. He held the rank of 2nd lieutenant and was a navigator and bombardier on a B-29 Flying Super Fortress. My father is also a veteran and served in the Navy. I have a special place in my heart for the men and women who have done so much to help our country, and this is the least I can do to say thank you,” says Avitus Group Business Development Manager Chris Balster.

Avitus Group employees and their families from offices across the United States are also sending hand-written letters to Colorado’s veterans who will open them during “mail call” on the flight home.

“Mail call holds a very special meaning for these brave men and women. While they were at war, the only form of communication they had with friends and family was through written letters. In a lot of cases, the veterans are so moved after receiving these letters, that they have them laminated for safekeeping. Our entire staff has been so supportive of the Rocky Mountain Honor Flight, and we can’t wait for the welcome home ceremony,” says Avitus Group Rocky Mountain Honor Flight Committee Co-Chair and Payroll Specialist Macy Krzyznieski.

"Avitus Group makes it a priority to give back to the communities we live and work in, and what a better cause than supporting our veterans," says Avitus Group Public Relations Manager Dianne Parker.

Rocky Mountain Honor Flight is a Denver based non-profit (501c3) hub of the Honor Flight Network. The mission is to provide a free trip to all capable WWII and Korean Veterans to Washington D.C. to say thank you, and to show the veterans that the memorials were built in their honor.
