Help us say Thank you to the Men and Women of The Greatest Generation!
Honor Flight is doing a major push to find World War II Veterans in the Central Texas area. As we all know too well, these heroes won’t be here long, for many this will be the last opportunity to see their WWII Memorial in Washington, D.C.
It is IMPERATIVE that we get out there and find these folks quick!
In preparation for our Spring 2015 flights, it is our goal to find at least 500 WWII veterans by the end of the Fall 2014 season.
Honor Flight’s mission is to transport America’s Veterans to Washington, D.C. to visit those memorials dedicated to honor their service and sacrifices. This two-day trip will include a day of travel with the second day reserved exclusively for visiting those memorials dedicated to honor their service and sacrifice.
|Without your support, this Trip of a Lifetime would not happen. You play a major part in honoring our Veterans.|
