Mail Call

Mail Call is a special surprise for all the veterans who fly on an Old Glory Honor Flight mission! Mail Call is made up of cards and letters from family, friends, neighbors and others expressing their appreciation and thanks for their service to our country and it's a throwback to when the vet was deployed many years ago. 

Each vet traveling on an Old Glory Honor Flight mission will have a "Mail Call Coordinator" that is asked to help gather mail for Mail Call. This individual will be contacted by one of our volunteers a couple of weeks prior to the flight and is responsible for gathering mail for their vet. The person contacted is usually the emergency contact listed on the vet's application. 

The Mail Call Coordinator should contact family members, friends, VFW members, civic group members, neighbors, church friends, etc. and ask them to write a card or letter for their veteran. The Mail Call Coordinator should collect it and then send one package containing all of the mail to the address listed below. Mail Call packets must be mailed in 2 weeks prior to the date of the flight!

Please Note: If the Mail Call Coordinator is unable to assist with coordinating the mail prior to the flight, we ask that they contact another family member or friend who may be willing to help. We don't want your veteran to be without mail!

Please send mail in ONE LARGE ENVELOPE to the following address:

Old Glory Honor Flight Mail Call
C/O "Veteran's Full Name Here" (not Dad, Mom or Grandpa, etc.)
W6390 Challenger Drive, Suite 243
Appleton, WI 54914

Mail Call can be dropped off in person up until 1 week prior to the flight at the Airport Adminstration Office located on the 2nd floor of the Appleton International Airport during normal business hours 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM Monday thru Friday.

Don't have a veteran on the flight, but still want to send mail?
Write letters, make cards or submit artwork to our honored male and female veterans from all branches of service. Please do not date them. If you have children in school, have them start a class project to write letters or collect donations. Remind our children that freedom isn't free and these are the heroes who gave up their freedom so that we may enjoy ours.
