Mail Call! KHS Invites YOU to Thank Our Female Veterans for Their Service

On behalf of Honor Flight Kentucky, KHS shares this opportunity to celebrate members of Kentucky’s first all-female Honor Flight, taking off on Saturday, June 11th. The flight, dubbed Operation HERoes, will be filled with female veterans who served during WWII, the Korean, and Vietnam Wars, as well as their guardians, female veterans who served during more recent conflicts. The flight provides an opportunity for these trailblazing veterans to share in a day of honor at our nation’s memorials in Washington D.C.

How can you honor these women? You and your family, friends, or affiliate groups can create and send cards, letters, and children’s drawings thanking them for their service to our Nation. Click here for details.

Please keep in mind:

Handwritten letters or cards are most appreciated 

Mail should be addressed to “Hero” or “Trailblazer” (avoid referring to any specific branch of service) 

Sign ONLY your first name, an organization name is also acceptable 

Do not date the letters
