Honor Flight Network

Time is of the essence.

World War II artilleryman James Wangen arrives...

This organization is dedicated to ensuring that all veterans from WWII, Korean War, and Vietnam War have the opportunity to travel to the national War Memorials — at no charge to the veteran. After all, these sites are theirs.

It is estimated that there are only about 1 million World War II veterans living…most are in their 90s. The numbers are dwindling at a rate of 600 a day, on average.  Honor Flight is a volunteer organization, funded on donations…it’s mission: is simply to ensure those veterans who want to see their memorials, do. Before it’s too late. If you know of someone who would like to make this trip, please be sure to get the word out to them.

All of the information is easily located at the link below, or click on the logo. If you’d like to make a donation to help this worthy cause, you make follow the links to find that information there, as well.
