Operation Thank You 2018


Thanks to our sponsors

Every Veterans Day, NewsRadio KLBJ and Lamb’s Tire and Automotive calls on our community to show their appreciation for our veterans. Over the past fifteen years, we’ve raised over $500,000 for U.S soldiers and veterans in Central Texas. This year we will continue the tradition by partnering with Honor Flight Austin who has successfully and proudly taken 2000 veterans to our Nation’s Capital to visit and experience the memorials built in their honor. With your help, resources are pooled together, experience is shared and alliances are formed throughout Austin to continue our noble cause to give these men and women a
Trip of a Lifetime.


You can help make their dream of visiting THEIR memorials, a reality by making a donation to NewsRadio KLBJ’s Operation Thank You benefiting Honor Flight Austin. All of the money donated will go to fund a flight for Spring 2019.


Please plan to join us on Friday, November 9th at Lamb’s Tire and Automotive on 183 and Braker as we broadcast from 5:30am to 7pm. You can make donations on-site the day of or online at www.newsradioklbj.com.


On behalf of the veterans, Lamb’s Tire and Automotive and Emerald Lawns, Thank you for your support and generosity!



The Honor Flight Austin mission is to transport veterans with a specific priority to Washington, D.C. to visit their memorials dedicated to honor their service and sacrifices and return them home to their families and loved ones.


Of all of the wars in recent memory, it was World War II that truly threatened our very existence as a nation and as a culturally diverse, free nation. It is estimated that 372 World War II veterans are dying each day, our time to express our thanks to these brave men and women, is running out.


Our WWII Veterans statewide will continue to receive first priority. We are asking for your help finding every willing and able World War II Veterans in Texas so we can fly them to Washington D.C., free of charge, to see their WWII Memorial. We are also taking Korea Veterans and Vietnam War Veterans from the 14 surrounding counties to participate on our flights.


You can find and fill out a Veteran Application here. You can also refer a Veteran for ‘A Trip of Lifetime’. Simply provide your Heroes name, contact information in the contact form to the right, and we’ll take it from there.
