PIEDMONT TRIAD, NC, May 3, 2023 – Triad Honor Flight, a member of the Honor Flight Network, has scheduled their spring Honor Flight for May 3, 2023. Veterans from the Triad area will be traveling from the Piedmont Triad International Airport to Washington, D.C. to visit the memorials dedicated to honoring those who have served and sacrificed for our country. This year’s flight will include World War II (WWII), Korean, Cold War, and Vietnam veterans.

The organization is responsible for managing this year’s event, Triad Honor Flight, which is a non-profit organization governed by a board of directors, and adhering to the Honor Flight Network guidelines. The original Honor Flights from the Triad (2009 – 2011) only included WWII veterans, but the establishment of the new organization allows the inclusion of all veterans 65 and older.
Triad Honor Flight organizer, Alison Huber says, “We are so very excited to have another Triad Honor Flight leaving PTI with 100 veterans being honored. Our eldest is 101. We are also traveling with a General, a Vietnam POW, and our first WWII female. Bi-annual flights will allow us to honor more of our Triad veterans with the opportunity to visit their memorials in D.C.”
PTI’s Executive Director Kevin Baker says, “This is a great day not only for our Triad veterans but also our community!”

The group will depart PTI early morning on May 3 at 8:50 A.M., and return at 8:15 P.M. after a day of touring in Washington, D.C.
