Honor Flight San Diego needs your help
Honor Flight San Diego is taking WWII veterans on their next “Tour of Honor” flight to Washington, D.C. on May 4, 2018. The organization is calling out to the community to reach as many WWII veterans as possible. Honor Flight San Diego knows there are thousands of WWII veterans over 90 years of age in Southern California who have not been on the trip. Honor Flight wants to get them on the trip before the veteran can no longer fly. There are seats available for WWII veterans on the next flight and the trip is no cost to the veteran.
The “Tour of Honor” flight is a three-day trip and includes visits to the National World War II, Vietnam, Korea and Iwo Jima war memorials, U.S. Air Force memorial and U.S. Navy Yard museum. The veterans witness changing of the guard ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery and female veterans will tour the Women in Military Service for America National Memorial.
The trip is more than visiting memorials – it is also a time for the veterans to share stories, make new friends and be honored for their service and sacrifice.
The “Tour of Honor” trip is completely funded through donations to Honor Flight San Diego. The veteran’s trip costs approximately $2,500 for three-day experience and there is no charge to the veteran.
Every veteran is escorted by a guardian who pays $750 for the trip.
