If you have never witnessed an Honor Flight, you are in for a treat and if you are unfamiliar with what they’re all about, let me fill you in.
The Honor Flight Network is a non-profit organization that flies military veterans from over 130 hubs across the United States to Washington, DC. Upon arrival in Washington, these veterans are treated as the true heroes that they are and have the opportunity to visit all of the memorials that have been erected in their honor, or in the honor of their comrades. In 2018 alone, over 21,000 veterans had the opportunity to take an honor flight. This entire experience is provided at no cost to the veteran. Needless to say, it is an incredible adventure for those that have served this great nation.
Neuro Community Care had the opportunity to support Jeff on his Honor Flight from Peoria, Illinois this year. Jeff survived a Traumatic Brain Injury during his time in the Army, but that would not slow him down from partaking in this once in a lifetime experience. His courageous efforts to protect this country were honored and applauded throughout the day of his flight.
Jeff continues to make great strides towards independence with the encouragement of his Community Support Specialist and care team. We are proud to work with individuals like Jeff, who have survived brain injury and have overcome innumerable obstacle to regain independence.
Neuro Community Care provides supportive services in an effort to regain independence and foster an improved quality of life. Reach out today for more information on how NCC can support your needs.
