How We Helped
Hillwood Airways, in partnership with Brothers in Arms Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides support to family members of critically wounded or fallen Marines & FMF Corpsman serving within Special Operations, was honored to assist in transporting the families of four of the fallen servicemen to their respective hometowns for funeral services. The flight, Marine Honor Flight 3, departed from California and flew from Washington to Wisconsin and then to Texas for the services before returning the families to California.
The Boeing 737-700C BBJ was arranged in a custom VIP configuration to comfortably accommodate all passengers and was outfitted with the logos of the Brothers in Arms Foundation.
