Mail Requests

Occasionally, Honor Flight will request cards to be sent to a particular veteran.

A few tips:
Make the letter out to “Dear Veteran,” as we fly World War II and Korean War veterans.
Thank them for their service, for our freedoms and for our country.
These can be letters or cards.
Please do not draw violent pictures, but certainly include pictures like tanks, soldiers, US flags and other fun drawings.
Please do not date them, as we may use these over multiple flights.
(Please, no glitter – seriously)

We will list all current requests on this page:

World War II Veteran Turns 100 on May 12th

David Philip Beere, a veteran of World War II, was hoping to come to DC on an Honor Flight but has become ill. Please send him birthday wishes, wishes for improved health, and your thanks for his service!

After Pearl Harbor and the declaration of war, David enlisted in the U.S. Navy Aviation
Program and was sent for training in New Orleans. Due to depth perception problems, he transferred to the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy (USMMA). He sailed on the TEXAS SUN as a cadet/midshipman during the war.
In 1944, he graduated from the USMMA and was assigned to the USNS GEORGE W. GOETHALS (T-AP-182) which carried troops in support of preparation for the Normandy invasion. He also was stationed at Allied Forces Headquarters in Caserta, Italy.
Following the war, Dave returned to Kings Point as a USMMA instructor.

  1. Would love for our Girl Scout Troop to do this. It would be great if they could provide a card to all on a particular Honor Flight.

    Wonderful program!!

  2. Hi Debi,

    We are so excited and thankful for your time and commitment to our veterans. If you check out the 2015 schedule page, you’ll see there are a lot of groups coming into the city on the dates you’ll be visiting. For anything that is TBD, that means we have not yet received official word on arrival times. Please keep checking back to our website regularly, we will post as soon as we get the word. We try to update every Friday.

    Thanks again!

  3. Gene, We are so proud you have got to goon this trip. Hope it was everything you dreamed about. You have always been someone to look up to. Enjoy every minute of your trip, so you can tell us all about it when you get home. You are an HONOR to be called a friend.
    Ronnie & Voda Beth

  4. Can mail call requests be dated. I would like to get my students involved, but I do not know if the requests are current. Thank you for your commitment to honoring our national heros.
