“Talons Out Honor Flight is successful due to the generous support of our community,” stated Dan Moyle, Vice President of Talons Out Honor Flight. “We couldn’t do what we do, honoring our Greatest Generation, without partners like the Battle Creek Chapter of Credit Unions. Because of this donation, we’re sending three local veterans on their Honor Flight. Thank you for the support!”
