Our Veterans of World War II are dying off , and their stories deserve to be told, and their lives deserve to be honored.



    This week, while flying , I saw the "Honor Flight", taking veterans back home from a visit to the WWII Veteran's Memorial. They were a varied group, some walked, some in wheel chairs, and some pushing their comrade's chairs. But. the crowd at the airport all cheered at their announced entrance, and their faces showed their pride.



Honor Flight Network is a non-profit organization created solely to honor America's veterans for all their sacrifices. We transport our heroes to Washington, D.C. to visit and reflect at their memorials. Top priority is given to the senior veterans – World War II survivors, along with those other veterans who may be terminally ill.



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. According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, an estimated 640 WWII veterans die each day. Our time to express our thanks to these brave men and women is running out.
