Recognizing Our Veterans – Indy Honor Flight #33

Freedom is never free. It is something that the majority of people take for granted, but there are unsung hero’s behind the scenes that have made this way of life possible. Indy Honor Flight is a non-profit organization created solely to honor Indiana’s veterans for their service and sacrifice. Their mission – To transport America’s Veterans to Washington, D.C. to visit those memorials dedicate to honor their sacrifices.

A neighbors father has been selected to be part of the Indy Honor Flight #33. She has asked our assistance in making this trip memorable for her father by participating in “Operation Mail Call”. Each veteran will receive a packet of cards and letters to read on their way back home. This is our opportunity to say “Thank You for my Freedom”.

The person that we have been asked to write to is…
Master Sargent Garry Lyon – Vietnam – 24 years US Army

Details about Operation Mail Call is…

We have been asked to send letters to MSG Garry Lyon

The Honor Flight will be on Saturday, April 16th. Upon returning to Indianapolis, there will be a “welcome home” event at Decatur High School – 5251 Kentucky Avenue, Indianapolis, IN 46221 at 9 pm. Everybody is welcome to attend this event…

Brothers – I ask all of you to please take a few minutes of your time to pen a note of thanks to the veterans who will be part of this Honor Flight. Feel free to pass this information along to others that may be interested in participating.

Also, I hope to see you at Decatur Central High School on April 16th @ 9 pm. If you have a Masonic shirt / hat / jacket – wear it to let these veterans see that we honor and respect them for all they have done!
