BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Circuit Judge David Dugan shared his experience with the Space Coast Honor Flight in his capacity as a volunteer Board Member and Guardian Coordinator during the October Military Officers Association of America Cape Canaveral Chapter October luncheon.

Judge Dugan provided insight and details regarding the decades-long effort to recruit veterans of WWII, Korea and Vietnam to participate in this life-changing experience.

The Space Coast Honor Flight has been operating locally since 2011.

“The MOAACC Good Deeds Foundation has supported the Space Coast Honor Flight for years,” said MOAACC spokesperson Marilyn Sanford.

“Currently, the School of Psychology at Florida Institute of Technology has a program to send graduate students, studying to support veterans and active-duty military in health-related professions, to accompany veterans on these flights.

“Unfortunately, some students cannot afford the fee to be guardian escorts. Thus the three organizations came together at the luncheon, and the GDF presented a check for $2,000 to Florida Tech to enable five graduate students to go on Honor Flights in 2020.”
