An interview with Honor Flight CT program director, Matt Sparks, a native of Boston Ma who relocated to CT in 2018 from upstate New York . In upstate New York he was involved with the local honor flight chapter and hoped to do the same in CT. After discovering there was no CT chapter, Matt and his son started the current Honor flight hub and began trips in 2019 .
An Honor Flight is conducted by non-profit organizations dedicated to transporting as many United States military veterans as possible to see the memorials of the respective war they fought in Washington, DC, at no cost to the veterans.
To better accomplish the Honor Flight mission and serve our military veterans of the State of Connecticut, in April of 2019, Honor Flight Connecticut was formed as an official hub of the National Honor Flight Network. The Honor Flight Connecticut mission is to honor our veterans by transporting them to Washington, DC to visit and reflect at their memorials. Honor Flight Connecticut proudly joins with 131 other Honor Flight Hubs in 45 other states sharing in that same mission.
