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. Our time to express our thanks to these brave men and women is running out.

To transport America’s Veterans to Washington, DC to visit those memorials dedicated to honor the service and sacrifices of themselves and their friends.
Our Goal is to raise $1,500.00 towards this trip, by April 30, 2018. Flight will be scheduled in May. Any remaining funds will be donated to the Honor Flight Program to help continue this honorable cause.
