In October, we helped welcome home the Veterans of Honor Flight’s 14th mission as it arrived at the Syracuse Hancock International Airport. Honor Flight Syracuse helps Greater Syracuse area veterans obtain a flight or bus trip to visit the war memorials in Washington D.C.

The organization recently created a nonprofit endowment fund at the Community Foundation to ensure perpetual support of its operations.
