In Memory of Rich Murray / Member of Honor Flight Phila and A Hero’s Welcome

It is with a heavy heart that I give you the sad news that Rich Murray, member of both Honor Flight Philadelphia and A Hero’s Welcome, passed away suddenly on Saturday Nov. 26 at his home in Avalon, NJ. I don’t have funeral details at this time but I will update this post as soon as I get the info.
Rich recently helped A Hero’ s Welcome at the Philadelphia Veterans Parade by helping me carry our big banner.. in the wind..lots of wind.. and Rich had a smile on his face the entire time as you can see by the picture attached. Rich was very proud of his service during the Vietnam War and was very active in the VVA Chapter in NJ near his home. Below is an article from about the recent Honor Flight for Vietnam Vets in Oct. 2016. The article tells how Rich felt about his service and his memories of his return home. Please keep Rich’s family in your thoughts and prayers.. We lost another good guy.. Rest in Peace Rich, it’s been an honor knowing you.
