The World War II Memorial was dedicated on May 29th
of 2004, but this wonderful memorial cannot be shared with most WW II veterans
doing everything we can to make this activity FREE for the veterans. Sadly, Honor Flight does not receive
any corporate or government sponsorship.
We are asking for donations to cover airfare, D.C. tour bus services,
food, tee shirts, scooter rental and operational costs. Were hoping that, by getting the word out,
public support will continue to grow. The more support we receive, the
more veterans finally get to visit their memorial. Over the past two years, we have transported
a total of 463 members of the Greatest Generation. We are now joined by other programs in
is NOT on our side. Since early January 2005, thirty-seven World War II
veterans on our waiting list have passed away without visiting their memorial.
In another 3 to 7 years, almost all WW II veterans will be gone. We
remain committed to do everything we can to help those surviving veterans view
their precious memorial. They are ordinary men and women who collectively
and literally saved
