My husband and I are both veterans. We fully support all veterans, especially those who have fought to keep us free. So, when I saw this website mentioned on another blog, I knew I had to post it here as well.
Stars and Stripes Honor Flight, Inc. is based in Wisconsin. Their goal is to send every surviving American WWII veteran to Washington DC to see the World War II memorial. They fly the veterans for free. What a wonderful idea!
The first link is to a YouTube video (it's a documentary trailer) that shows some of the veterans and how they feel about their trip to DC. The second link is to another video that shows how some of these veterans were greeted in the Chicago Airport when they returned from their trip.

This next link is to the Stars and Stripes Honor Flight web site. It explains their organization and mission.

Send these links to everyone you know so we can spread the word and support for this wonderful organization. Maybe we can help grow the number of states that offer these flights.
These men and women are from the Greatest Generation and they deserve our support!
