Snap-on Backs Associate/Franchisee Veterans’ Honor Flights To Washington D.C.

Early this month, Snap-on Inc. hosted its first “solo” Honor Flight for the company’s associates and franchisees who served in World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War. It afforded 25 veterans from 13 states the opportunity to visit the Washington, DC memorials erected in their honor.

Snap-on formally announced its sponsorship of the Honor Flight Network with a $50,000 donation to the organization earlier this year. As a result, more than 50 associates and franchisees will participate in Honor Flights to view their memorials.

Citing an “overwhelming” number of veterans who have applied to be part of solo Honor Flights, Snap-on plans to make a second $50,000 donation to fund two additional flights this spring.
