Thank you notes to Hoosier veterans

by Cindy Kirchhofer – State Representative – Indiana

Indy Honor Flight is asking for thank you cards and letters to give to local veterans during their upcoming flight to Washington, D.C.

The nonprofit organization was created to honor World War II, Korean and Vietnam War veterans from Indiana by transporting them to the nation’s capital to visit the memorials dedicated to their service and sacrifices.

On their trip home, veterans receive a packet of letters, drawings and more to enjoy. This is a simple, meaningful way to thank them for all they have done to protect our freedoms.

Please send cards and letters in by May 18 to:
Indy Honor Flight
P.O. Box 10
Plainfield, IN 46168

If you, a family member or friend is interested in being a part of this experience, please have the veteran complete an application here. For other volunteering opportunities, click here.
