Honor Flight of Southern Indiana is teaming up with Mission BBQ to help send 20 veterans on the next flight to Washington D.C.

Those who wish to support the next Honor Flight can do so by purchasing a limited edition "American Heroes" cup for an extra $2 when eating at Mission BBQ.

Mission BBQ stepped in to help when Honor Flight of Southern Indiana when the COVID-19 pandemic hit and the national Honor Flight Network had to put a halt to all fundraising events.

"They came up with this fundraiser because we weren't allowed to do anything because of the whole COVID thing," said Diane Shaw of Honor Flight of Southern Indiana. "We weren't allowed to go out and do fundraising. They stepped up in a big way."

More than 4,000 cups have been purchased so far to support our veterans.

Those who would like to support the next Honor Flight by purchasing a cup have until Aug 10 to do so.
