American 1 has proudly supported previous Honor Flight-related initiatives in the past and is proud to support the organization again. The Honor Flights fly veterans to the nation’s capital and allow them to tour monuments honoring their service, and the Day of Honor fundraiser helps to support these flights.
“We are incredibly pleased to sponsor a Talons Out Day of Honor,” said Janelle Merritt, Community Partnerships Manager at American 1. “Supporting Talons Out represents our passion for celebrating our Veterans and for giving them the honor and recognition they deserve.”
American 1 and Talons Out invite the community to join them for a Day of Honor celebration at Wings Event Center in Kalamazoo on Sunday, July 10. The event, which will help raise funds for future Flights, will feature a car show, food truck rally, motorcycle ride, vendor fair, DJ and live music, and an auction.
