George Rickey

Eastern Iowa Honor Flight

“At any given time, you will find George with camera in hand and his phone ready to submit a story. In 2016 alone, he traveled hundreds of miles to cover weekly events, sharing the mission of Honor Flight and our Veterans’ stories; all while building irreplaceable relationships with the community.”

— Jason Brandon


George has been the voice of Honor Flight for the past five years through his service as the Media and Public Relations Coordinator. His talent for coordinating multiple media outlets such as newspaper, TV, radio, social media and public speaking events has magnified their ability to reach veterans who have not yet gone on an Honor Flight and raise public awareness and funds that support the mission.
