The Foundation served as the fiscal sponsor and administrative home for Coastal Georgia Honor Flight during its maiden voyage in May 2015. That flight hosted 45 veterans from World War II and the Korean War along with 60 guardians and other support personnel as they traveled to Washington, D.C., to visit their respective war memorials and other military sites.
