2020 Freedom Honor Flight scheduled for September postponed

The Freedom Honor Flight scheduled for September 12, 2020, has been postponed.

The national honor flight organization has extended the suspension of all Honor Flight travel through the remainder of 2020.

Freedom Honor Flight President Dave Larsen said, “The safety of our veterans is our top priority. Our veterans are older adults and many have severe underlying chronic medical conditions. They are at a higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19 illness.”

The organization is committed to rescheduling what will be the 25th flight as soon as possible. Fundraising continues. One of the largest fundraisers for the group, the Festival Foods Icon Sale will be held as planned, July 3–17 at the Holmen, La Crosse and Onalaska Festival Food stores.
