The Board of Directors would like to thank everyone for their overwhelming outpouring of support over the last several days after our very difficult decision.  The heartwarming thank you’s from our Veterans, Guardians, Volunteers, Supporting Organizations, Friends, Strangers and the Entire Western New York Community were truly appreciated during a difficult time.  Without all of you we could not have accomplished what Honor Flight Buffalo accomplished getting 500 World War II Heroes to see their memorial in Washington, DC. who otherwise might not have had the opportunity - 18 Flights, rain free and 100% safety record.  Thank you!

Dear Veterans, Guardians, Volunteers, Organizations and the entire

Western New York Community:

 

After serious consideration, the Honor Flight Buffalo Board of Directors has voted to dissolve the organization. 

 

We are very proud of our accomplishments over the past six years in honoring our father S/SGT Robert P. Wylie, U.S. Army Air Corps, World War II Veteran.  18 flights were completed and over 500 World War II Veterans were honored.

 

To all of you who have supported Honor Flight Buffalo because of your generosity and support we have been able to “Keep our Veterans Flying”.

 

All Veteran and Guardian Applications which are on file will be transferred to the Honor Flight Network Headquarters. 

 

We send our heartfelt thank you to each and every one of you.
