Under the direction of Andrew Schiavello, Honor Flight of Philadelphia shares in our mission! October 5, 2015 The National coordinator Danielle Fialkowski and assistant Coordinator Karen Crawford were asked to join Honor Flight as the official photographers for the trip.
We accompanied veterans from the Korean War and WW2 to the different monuments in out Nations Capital. The veterans also had the opportunity to be greeted by Gen Colin Powell and Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick as well as one of the Joint Chiefs . We also visited the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The ride home would not be complete without the proper escort from Warriors Watch Riders from SePA, CePA, NePA, Jesey and Delaware.
We were greeted with all the fan fair one ould expect at Parx Casino.

Today, August 10th, at the grand opening of Mission BBQ in Northeast Philadelphia, director Danielle Fialkowski and the assistant Director Karen Crawford presented the founders of Mission Bbq with the Kathryn Fialkowski award for their support of all our veterans, enlisted men and women and all first responders. We were joined by the Marines, Army, National Guard, Philly’s finest motor patrol, mounted police officers, honor guards, Firemen from Bensalem, Warriors Watch Riders, State Representative Martina White, and many more.
Every day at noon the restaurant stops everything and the entire restaurant recites the National Anthem. The decor is all first responder memorabilia and military memorabilia. Patches are on the walls, stickers on poles. A real patriotic feel. The restaurant first opened their door on 9-11. Not a coincidence.
The food there is amazing. Just saying.

MISSION BBQ opened its doors for business on September 11, 2011.
Ten years after our world changed forever, in some small way we wanted to change it back.
As the founders of MISSION BBQ, we strive every day to remind everyone what makes our country great—its heroes.
Who are we? Two friends passionate about superior BBQ, patriotic for our country, and who believe in running a business with meaning and purpose.
We believe there is nothing more American than BBQ. And nobody more American than the brave men and women who have sworn to protect and serve our communities and our country. We do what we do for the love of our soldiers, firefighters, police officers, first responders—all our loved ones in service.
We set across this great land from Texas to Kansas City, the Carolinas to St. Louis…to discover the secrets of great BBQ.
Every day we strive to serve you authentic BBQ made from the freshest, most delectable ingredients, and serve it to you in a patriotic dining room filled with tributes to those who’ve made our country great, given to us by the people who earned them. Stop by at lunchtime, and you might catch us during our daily salute to the Stars and Stripes.
We don’t do any of this because we have to. It’s because we want to.
At Mission BBQ, we are proudly serving those who serve. Come help us complete our mission.

In 2013 I created Billy’s BASEballs as my Bar Mitzvah project. I collect baseballs, have people write notes on them and then I send these personal tributes to our military to bring them good cheer. A baseball is a pretty friendly object. It does a great job at bringing people together. Even without a mitt, a baseball can be tossed in a simple game of catch. It reminds people of being young, special friendships and simpler times. It transports easily ? fits into any backpack or even a pocket. A baseball is a nice way to say “Hi” and the soldiers really enjoy getting them.
In less than a year I have sent over 2500 BASEballs and turned my mitzvah project to a Non For Profit Company. It’s a pleasure to do a project like this and to bring awareness of the sacrifices our service people make on our behalf each and every day. They truly are Heroes.
