Snap-on Incorporated Hosts Veterans In Nation's Capital: First Company To Sponsor Solo Honor Flights For Its Associates And Franchisees

WASHINGTON, Oct. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Snap-on Incorporated is hosting its initial "solo" Honor Flight for the company's associates and franchisees, who served in World War II, Korean and Vietnam wars, here this weekend. Snap-on is the first company to partner with Honor Flight Network to send its own military veterans to visit the Washington, D.C. 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 of that donation, more than 50 associates and franchisees will participate in Honor Flights to view their memorials.  Twenty-five veterans, traveling from 13 different states are in the nation's capital as a part of the first solo flight; among them is William Rayburn, former chairman and chief executive officer of Snap-on Incorporated and a WWII veteran.  The group was joined by Snap-on chairman and chief executive officer Nick Pinchuk, also a veteran.

"This is an extraordinary day for Snap-on joining with the Honor Flight Network in recognizing our veterans who have given so much. Today, we're saluting these patriots by giving them a chance to visit the memorials in Washington, D.C. dedicated to their service by a grateful nation. It means so much to those who've served. We're delighted to have already scheduled two Honor Flights and to make an additional donation sponsoring two more," says Pinchuk. "Snap-on is a great American company, and it's a privilege for us to thank our veterans in this way.  They protected our freedom and helped make possible the America we love and enjoy today.  These Honor Flights give us the opportunity to show them that their sacrifice has not been forgotten."

Due to the overwhelming number of veterans who applied to be a part of the solo Honor Flights, Snap-on will make a second $50,000 donation to fund two additional flights scheduled for spring 2014.
