Honor Flight – Honoring Veterans with a trip to the Veterans Memorials

Source:  honorflightaz.org

Honor Flight Network is a non-profit organization created solely to honor America’s WWII veterans for all their sacrifices. We transport our heroes to Washington, D.C. to reflect and be honored at their memorials.

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. Now, with 1500 World War II veterans dying each day nationwide, our time to express our thanks to these brave men and women is running out.

We are the Arizona hub of Honor Flight, the 28th state to set up a hub. We are part of the national network that is flying WWII veterans to their monument in Washington, D.C. Our desire is to fly as many WWII veterans from Arizona to Washington, D.C. at no cost to them.
