Host sends our sincere thanks to all the brave men and women who have served and are currently serving in our armed forces.

Our founder, T. Parker Host, Sr. joined the U.S. Army as an airplane pilot at the onset of World War I. He served as a Lt. Colonel in the First Air Squadron. Decades later, Host, Sr. made the patriotic decision to resign as mayor of Newport News, VA to rejoin the U.S. Army Air Corps to serve in World War II. His son, T. Parker Host, Jr. also served in the U.S. Army Air Corps during World War II.
