Noah is one of our youngest supporters. His commitment to honor our Veterans is evident at every Welcome Home Ceremony he attends. We asked Noah to share a few words about why he has chosen to give his time to applaud The Greatest Generation.

Honor Flight Austin, World War II,

Noah, friend of our Austin WWII Veterans!

“My name is Noah and I am 13 years old.  I have been helping Honor Flight as my community service project for my Bar Mitzvah.  I got started with Honor Flight because my neighbor, Marv Kanter, is a spokesman for Honor Flight and he is a World War II Navy veteran.  It brought tears to my eyes to see the World War II veterans so happy when we welcomed them back from their flights to the World War II Memorial and the other war memorials in DC.  I enjoyed making the poster and flyer for Honor Flight, welcoming home the vets, and giving them thank you cards.  This is a really nice thing to do if you want to do something to give back to the community and thank the vets” – Noah

Noah mentioned that he was overcome with emotion as he welcomes home our Veterans; our Veterans are also overcome with emotion as they see our community honor their service and sacrifice.

WWII Veteran Marvin Kanter, Noah’s neighbor and friend, shared throughout this 3 minute video, his appreciation and surprise that people in his community thought of him and his fellow Veterans.

“I couldn’t believe that after all these years, that they were thinking about us…I salute you.” – WWII Veteran and Honor Flight Alumni, Marvin Kanter
