American 1 Credit Union Announces Sponsorship of Talons Out Honor Flight

On Feb. 23, American 1 Credit Union announced its Silver Star Sponsorship of the April 21 Talons Out Honor Flight. Talons Out is a 501(c)(3) and a regional hub of the national nonprofit organization Honor Flight. This group of dedicated volunteers strives to honor veterans with an all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C., where they are honored with a tour of national monuments built in their honor.

“When we started our journey four short years ago, of the 16 million that served in World War II, less than 2 million remained,” said Bobbie Bradley, Talons Out’s president. “Today, less than 500,000 remain. Our goal is to continue this mission and serve veterans from other wars as well.”

“When we first heard of the Honor Flight movement, we immediately knew that this was an effort we wanted to be part of,” said Laura Pryor, American 1’s vice president of marketing and communications. “This sponsorship represents American 1’s desire to celebrate our veterans and the sacrifices they made for our country. We are beyond thrilled to be working with Talons Out and giving veterans the honor they deserve.”

On March 18th, American 1 is hosting a free showing of Mission Accomplished: Talons Out Honor Flight at the Michigan Theatre in downtown Jackson. The film, created by WGVU/PBS, showcases the efforts put forth by Talons Out and follows along on an actual Honor Flight. The community is also invited to join American 1 and Talons Out for a Welcome Home Party at Wings Stadium in Kalamazoo the night of April 21.
