Ashley Bruggeman began her involvement with Honor Flight Kentucky in 2019 as a volunteer on behalf of the Junior League of Lexington and joined the Homefront Heroes team to honor the spouses of our Vietnam veterans.
Selected as a board member in 2020, she serves the organization in various capacities, striving to celebrate each participating veteran. Ashley has been very involved in the community through several charitable organizations over the years, but can’t think of a more rewarding experience than showing gratitude for the service and sacrifices of our nation’s veterans. Her brother currently serves in the U.S. Navy, previously stationed at Camp David among other locations and currently in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
“There’s nothing like seeing the image of two WWII veterans squeezing each other’s hands while they watch the guards at The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier or the image of a South Korean man saluting one of our Korean War vets while at the memorial in D.C. These are moments that move you to tears and remind you of just how impactful their service has been to not just our country, but to the world as a whole.”
