JourneyCare has an active partnership with Lake County Honor Flight, based in North Chicago, which will fly 20 veterans to Washington D.C. on August 13-14.
While on the return flight from their journey, one of the highlights is “Mail Call.” Each veteran is given a mailbag stuffed with letters addressed to him or her, all of them expressing love, support and gratitude. Some letters are from family members, but others include their congresspersons, other dignitaries, friends and complete strangers who want to reach out and let these heroes know they are so appreciated.
Your cards and letters are needed! Any type of note, of any length, is welcome. The veterans’ names and branch of service are listed below. You can return all letters to the address below by August 10 or direct them to Linda Rockwell, our We Honor Veterans program manager, at the Glenview office by Friday, August 12. Linda will personally deliver your letters at the Honor Flight departure on August 13.
Any questions? Please contact Linda at Lrockwell@carecenter.org or 847-556-1778.
