Honor Flight Fundraising

Amarillo, TX - One of the two honor flights leaving Amarillo in the fall is now paid for. It has been a bit of a struggle this year because America supports you Texas added a second flight for the first time this year.

Essentially doubling the cost, but ASY's president Jack Barnes said at a press conference less than an hour ago that the community continues to step up.

The Bivins foundation announced a very generous donation this morning leaving just the second flight to pay for. Each flight will cost over $200,000.

And Barnes is adamant about saying our WWII vets have paid so much already. And there is no way America Supports You Texas is going to let them pay a dime for this trip.
