Vietnam Vets Sought For Honor Flight Trip — The Philadelphia Chapter of Honor Flight, a non-profit dedicated to helping every Veteran in America visit the national memorials dedicated to their service, and Philadelphia’s SugarHouse Casino have partnered to provide to celebrate Philadelphia-area Vietnam veterans Vwith an all-expense paid full-day excursion to Washington, D.C.
Vietnam War Veterans will “Report for Duty” on Saturday, Oct. 1, at SugarHouse Casino where they then travel by bus convoy to visit Arlington National Cemetery to honor the service of men and woman of war who gave the ultimate sacrifice in service to their country. The more than 200 Vietnam Veterans, will tour Washington, D.C. memorials, most notably the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, dedicated 1982, which reflects the images of visitors simultaneously with the engraved names of those killed or missing in action, to symbolically bring the past and present together.
“SugarHouse Casino is proud to partner with Honor Flight Philadelphia and to help recognize the military service of men and women veterans of our nation,” said Sugarhouse CEO Wendy Hamilton. “We are excited to sponsor Honor Flight Philadelphia’s Day of Honor for our Vietnam War veterans because we know these heroes were not warmly welcomed home at the end of their military service, and so together with our SugarHouse Casino employees and patrons we will make that right with a vigorous and long overdue ‘Welcome Home’ and ‘Thank You for Your Service’ these veterans will never forget.”
