Golf tournament at Locust Hill benefits Honor Flight
Pittsford, N.Y. (WHAM) - You might call it a "hole in one" for Rochester-area veterans.
A golf tournament benefiting Honor Flight Rochester was held Monday at Locust Hill Country Club.
Honor Flight helps veterans travel to military memorials in Washington, D.C. as a thank you for their service to our nation.
"It's a trip of a lifetime," said Frances McCabe, one of the organizers with Honor Flight Rochester. "They saved our world. Our veterans are why we are here. This is something they fought for, and they are so deserving and they just don't get the recognition I feel that they deserve."
Honor Flight Rochester has taken more than 2,000 men and women veterans from the Greater Rochester area on 54 well-deserved Honor Flight missions to visit their memorials in the nation’s capitol.
Veterans can apply for an Honor Flight online at Honor Flight Rochester.org. Paper applications are available through U.S Mail by leaving a voicemail with your name at address at (585)-210-2115.
