CCC Student Veterans Association to host showing of the Honor Flight Movie


The Clinton Community College Student Veterans Association will be host a public showing of the Honor Flight Movie at 6:00 p.m., Thursday May 8, 2014.  The Movie will be shown at Clinton Community College Auditorium, 1000 Lincoln Blvd., Clinton.  There is no charge for the movie but donations will be accepted and forwarded to the Honor Flight of the Quad Cities.  

This is a 85 minute movie about four WWII vets and a Midwest community coming together to give them the trip of a lifetime.  The film follows these vets on their trip to our nation’s capital and the war memorials there. The Student Veterans will be selling Honor Flight hats and t-shirts with all proceeds going to the Honor Flight of the Quad Cities.  The students will also have food and snacks for sale at the event.

The CCC Student Veterans Association (CCCSVA) is a chapter of the national Student Veterans Association and was established as a Social and Educational organization to provide support for student veterans and their families as they transition from military to college to civilian life.  By harnessing the collective experience and knowledge of all association members, we provide peer support and guidance to the student veteran population, their families, Clinton Community College, and the surrounding communities.
