The Veterans will get a chance to connect with other veterans of their conflict as well as other conflicts and share stories with each other as well as family members. It is a very rewarding trip that no veterans should miss.

FROM THE NEWS
NEWS AND VNC UP-DATES;
I would like to thank everyone that made 2019 a great year and hope that we will do better in 2020.
We need everyone to show up at our dinner on May 9th at Moretti’s for our kick off dinner for Honor Flight. You can do your part and bring people to the dinner—we would like to beat last years dinner that we raised $5,000.00 for our trip. We do need more vets to sign-up for the trip this year, we still have 68 seats open for the trip. We will add one more stop this year the Army Museum—that will put us 19 stops we do on our 4 day 3 night trip, more then any other Honor Flight. We will have other events over the year for you to come and see to support the VNC.
Due to Corona Virus concerns our general meeting on March 25th has been cancelled. Please continue to check back for updates.
