Honor Flight Network Offers WWII Veterans a Free Trip to Nation's Capitol

by Published On: Jun 03, 2011

Founded in 2005,  the Honor Flight Network is committed to giving as many veterans the chance to see the WWII memorial in Washington, DC, at no cost.

What started with six plans flying 12 Ohio veterans to the nation's capitol is now a program that's helped more than 63,000 veterans see the memorials that honor their service. How do they do it? To start, several pilots volutneered their services as well as the cost of plane rental. U.S. Airways now donates planes for use and Southwest Airlines has given away thousands of tickets to help the cause.

Many of our members worked with Honor Flight to organize trips for the veterans they serve. All it takes if filling out an application. LeadingAge encourages you to share this information with your residents and clients and help them see how their service is being honored.
