FAS Supports Veterans of Ohio, The RV Chapter of Honor Flight
FAS Clients Tom and Peggy Hill of Versailles and the FAS Team stand in support of the Honor Flight RV Chapter Network.
(November 9, 2015, GREENVILLE, OHIO) Financial Achievement Service Inc. (FAS) recently offered their support to the Ohio regional hub of the Honor Flight RV Chapter Network.
The Honor Flight Network is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to transporting as many United States military veterans as possible to see the war memorials established in their honor on the Mall in Washington, D.C. The trips are provided at no cost to the veterans, and volunteers assist the veterans’ travel around the Nation’s Capital during their stay.
Since 2005 when the inaugural honor flight took place launching from Springfield Ohio, The Honor Flight Network has safely transported tens of thousands of veterans from all across the United States, providing disability and travel accommodations, meals as well as air and road transportation. The mission of the Honor Flight Network is to transport America’s Veterans to Washington, D.C. to visit those memorials to honor their sacrifices. Top priority is given to America’s most senior veterans — survivors of World War II — and any veterans with a terminal illness who wish to visit their memorials.
FAS became acquainted with the Honor Flight program over a year ago through clients of 15 years, Tom and Peggy Hill of Versailles (pictured with the FAS team), who are affiliated with the Honor Flight RV Program. The Honor Flight RVC (Recreational Vehicle Convoy) is an alternate method of traveling to Washington, D.C. for those WWII, Korean or Vietnam veterans who choose not to fly. This year’s RV trip took place September 11-13. A convoy of 8 motorhomes drove 28 local Veterans and 24 support people to Washington D.C. where they visited the WWII, Korean, Vietnam, and Marines memorials as well as Arlington National Cemetery and the Women in Military Service to America Memorial.
This is the second year FAS has supported the Honor Flight mission. They have chosen to support this cause due to their strong connections to current and former military personnel who are family, friends, and FAS clients. Matt Arnold, FAS owner and president says, “The Honor Flight RV Chapter trip is a unique opportunity for local veterans regardless of age or financial situation to visit their national memorials. Many of our veterans would not be able to take a trip like this on their own and may never get to see the memorials that have been dedicated to them. These people deserve to see their heroism honored. That’s why our company feels fortunate that we are able to help them on their memorable journeys.”
