Honor Flight Network is a non-profit organization created solely to honor America’s veterans for all their sacrifices. Their Mission is to take veterans of the WWII, Korean Era, and Vietnam Era to see their national memorials in Washington DC. Priority is given to terminally ill veterans from any of these wars. These trips (both via air or RVC ground transportation) are provided at no cost to all qualified veterans. This includes airfare, bus transportation while in DC, meals, t-shirts, and disposable cameras.
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 society. According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, an estimated 640 WWII veterans die each day. Our time to express our thanks to these brave men and women is running out.
