R.V. Evans Company is "rallying the troups" in 2014 and showing support for our World War II Veterans by raising and donating funds to the Land of Lincoln Honor Flight whose mission is to: “Provide round trip transportation from Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport in Springfield, Illinois for veterans in order of their service (WWII, Korean Era and Vietnam Era) who wish to visit their memorials in Washington, D.C. This day trip is provided completely free of charge to the veteran in honor of his/her service to our country.”
R.V.Evans’ employees will be contributing in various ways throughout 2014 to help raise awareness for this important cause including, monetary donations being matched 100% by the R.V. Evans Company, writing letters to Veterans for distribution on their in-flight “Mail Call”, and attending “Welcome Home” events for returning Honor Flights in Springfield, IL and St. Louis, MO. R.V. Evans Company will also help spread the word about “Welcome Home” event dates through their social networks.

Kelly Evans, President of R.V. Evans Company, says it best: “The R.V. Evans Company proudly supports the Land of Lincoln Honor Flight Organization and the numerous volunteers involved in bringing life to Honor Flight's Mission to “Take Our Heroes to see THEIR Memorial”. It is with humble appreciation that we graciously pay tribute to those brave men and women who gave so much and yet continue to expect so little in return. We are so grateful to those who served our Country and look forward to helping fund future Land of Lincoln Honor Flight Missions as a small measure in expressing our respect and admiration.”
