4-6 Jun 2015 - Honor Flight

I am so very happy to announce that the Dixie Center will be the host for our Utah Honor Flight 4-6 June 2015 send off and homecoming.  There will be 25 WWII St. George Veterans and their guardians and six staff on the flight. There will be one bus coming from Cedar City with the same number on board, but they are only traveling with us to and from Las Vegas. They will not be present for our ceremonies.

We are in the planning stages for the send off and the homecoming. However, we have planned on a 4 June 6-6:30 a.m. departure from the Dixie Center to the Las Vegas airport. We will have two Dixie buses and a van for our travels. The homecoming will commence 6 June at 5:00 p.m. (Las Vegas time) from Las Vegas back to the Dixie Center.
Both will be indoor events at the Dixie Center.  Please let me know if I can answer any questions you may have. Our veterans would be thrilled to have you participate in these special events.
Thank you
Jennie Barnett
Chairwoman Southern, Utah Honor Flight


I have been requested to be the liaison between the UHF committee, the Patriot Guard Riders, and all of the VSOs in the St. George area for the events of the upcoming flight in June.  To date, the information I share with you is that a total of 110 participants (WWII veterans and their guardians) will be leaving the Dixie Convention center on the morning of June 4th  (ETD of 0600 hrs.) and returning to that same locale at approximately 2030 to 2100 hrs. on June 6th.

There are DSU buses plus the Ivins Veteran Center van which will carry the group to McCarran, and pick them up for their trip back on their return from Washington, D. C.  The PGR members are to escort the group both to and from McCarran, and, if any of the VSO members are interested in participating at the departure and return, we would welcome their attendance with any preferred ceremonials at the Dixie Center that your members may prefer.  Any participation is voluntary, but is sincerely appreciated, especially by these Veterans, of WWII campaigns.

Please feel free to contact me, and I plan to be available for the May Veterans Coalition Meeting at Post 90 to answer any related questions.

Thanks and Regards,
Gordon Poppitt
