About the Guest
Joe Byron is the founder of Honor Flight New England. Honor Flight New England is a non-profit organization that transports World War II Veterans to the World War II Memorial in Washington DC at no cost to the veteran. Joe is a Vietnam era veteran, retired law enforcement officer and recognized expert in elder crime issues. After retiring he served as the Senior Services Coordinator with the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office and went on to work as a criminal investigator with the New Hampshire Office of the Attorney General Elder Abuse and Financial Exploitation Unit. He is responsible for the introduction of House Bill 180, which made the neglect of an elderly, disabled or impaired adult in New Hampshire a crime.
Honor Flight New England is a non-profit organization created solely to honor America's veterans for their sacrifices. Through generous donations we transport veterans from the New England States to Washington, D.C., to visit and reflect at their memorials AT NO COST TO THE VETERAN. Top priority is given to our most senior veterans – World War II survivors, and veterans of other wars that are terminally ill.
