What is it?

Since the dedication of the World War II memorial in Washington D.C., the Honor Flight concept was launched to recognize the service and sacrifice of American Veterans with a visit to the national memorials at NO COST to the veteran. Most WWII veterans are now in their 80’s and do not have the where-with-all to travel on their own. Honor Flight Guardians travel along providing assistance and help veterans have a safe, memorable, and rewarding experience.

Purpose

The purpose of the committee is to raise funds to provide an all expense paid trip for World War II veterans to Washington D.C. to tour the National World War II Memorial, which was completed and dedicated in 2004. The committee will raise funds to send 120 World War II veterans from Southwest Minnesota to see the World War II Memorial in Washington D.C., departing late spring/early summer of 2010. Veterans are flown free of charge to see the memorial built in their honor. All expenses are covered—our heroes do not pay a single cent.

Fundraising

The cost of the 2-day trip to send a veteran to Washington D.C. is $800. Would you consider making a donation to sponsor a veteran?
