TOWN OF MAINE (WBNG) — On Tuesday, the plans were revealed for 2020’s Twin Tiers Honor Flight at the Greater Binghamton Airport. “It’s as emotional for guardians and staff as it is for the volunteers,” says Board Member and Treasurer of Twin Tiers Honor Flight Steve Gardner. “When they see the wall and their eyes are fixed on a name you don’t know what they are thinking.” Upon returning to Binghamton around 7 p.m., the veterans are met by a reception of over 500 people. 60 veterans, guardians and staff will be on the flight to the nation’s capital. The Honor Flight is a non-profit organization that was created to honor American veterans. When they arrive, they get onto a bus and are escorted by capital police. This mission will mark a milestone for the Honor Flight as they will have transported over 500 veterans to Washington.last_img read more
