On Saturday, Oct. 17th , Old Glory Honor Flight of Northeast Wisconsin Proudly Presents Operation At Ease '15.  Old Glory Honor Flight of Northeast Wisconsin announces an event to recognize and publicly thank the US military veterans of the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq. This event, entitled Operation.  At Ease '15, will take place on Saturday, October 17th, 2015 at the Outagamie Regional Airport's FBO facilities.  While Old Glory Honor Flight remains committed to transporting Wisconsin's World War II and Korean War veterans to Washington DC, this special event will be different.  For Operation At Ease '15, Old Glory Honor Flight will transport veterans of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom via motor coach to Marseilles, Illinois to visit the Middle East Conflicts Wall Memorial (pictured below).  The veterans will return to Outagamie Regional Airport facilities to a welcome home celebration featuring a concert by the nationally-known band Madison Rising and the public is invited to attend.

"Old Glory Honor Flight has always been driven by the motto that 'it is never too late to say thank you,' but that doesn't mean we have to wait decades to show the warriors of today that we appreciate their service" said Old Glory Honor Flight President, Drew MacDonald. "We have seen firsthand the healing power of the Vietnam Wall in Washington DC and we are hopeful that the Middle East Conflicts Wall Memorial will provide the same benefits for our OEF and OIF vets."  This is a special event with a separate application process.  Interested veterans may go to www.oldgloryhonorflight.org to secure an application. Corporate partners are encouraged to contact Old Glory honor Flight to discuss sponsorship opportunities.  Old Glory Honor Flight also invites other veteran-centered non-profit organizations to participate in Operation at Ease.  They may contact us at operationatease@gmail.com

Old Glory Honor Flight of Northeast Wisconsin 
in partnership with the
Green Bay Packers
proudly present
Mission 33 - The Green and Gold Flight
October 21, 2015
To celebrate America's veterans and to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Packers' Super Bowl I victory, Old Glory Honor Flight, in partnership with the Green Bay Packers proudly announces a special Honor Flight Mission. This special flight will take place on October 21st, 2015 and will feature several members of the Packers' Super Bowl I team acting as escorts for our WWII and Korean War veterans as they tour the memorials in our nation's capital.
 
Old Glory Honor Flight Mission 33, which is unofficially dubbed the 'Green and Gold Flight,' will feature 85 veterans of World War II and the Korean War as the guests of honor and will be highlighted  by the former Packer players acting as escorts.
 
"We all remember the Packers of the 1950's, 60's and 70's as they wore the green and gold but we should also remember that many of those players also wore the red, white and blue as members of  the United States military, so we feel that this is a natural fit" said Old Glory Honor Flight Treasurer, Diane MacDonald. "We are humbled to have a world class organization like the Packers help us show our veterans how thankful the nation is for their service."
 
As usual, the public is invited to the welcome home celebration at the Appleton International Airport on October 21st at approximately 8:15 pm.  The airport will offer free parking for this emotional  event.
