Frontier Technology Inc. believes in honoring and giving respect to our Veterans. The Dayton Honor Flight is local outreach that seeks to honor our Armed Forces by taking veterans of the WWII, Korean Era, and Vietnam Era wars to see their national memorials in Washington, DC. Special priority is given to terminally ill veterans from any of these wars.  These trips are provided at no cost to all qualified veterans which includes airfare and bus transportation while in DC. In September 2017, FTI became the first company to fully sponsor an entire Dayton Honor Flight. 95 Veterans and their volunteers enjoyed a fun-filled and emotional day of being honored for their service, while being in our nation’s capital. Recently Al Bailey, President, and Kelley Cox, Treasurer, visited FTI’s headquarters in Beavercreek, Ohio to deliver a personal thanks for FTI’s participation this past year in the FTI Dayton Honor Flight program. FTI currently is in the process of planning their next Dayton Honor Flight in 2019. Be sure to visit again for more information on this exciting outreach in 2019.
