Honor Flights for WWII Veterans
A couple times a year, WWII Veterans are flown to visit WWII, Vietnam, Korean, Navy, Marine, Air Force memorials and changing of the guard at Arlington Cemetery. We want the word to get out to all Veterans apart of WWII to receive a free trip.
- First priority goes to any WWII Veteran who has not been on a previous flight
- Second priority goes to Korean Veterans who served from 6/25/50-1/31/55
- All-expenses paid
- Family members going as a guardian to the veteran have priority, also
- Guardians pay their own fare, but get group rates on the flights, lodging, etc. - usually around $950 plus or minus
- October 2015 is the next scheduled flight, slots filled in order of application date per priority status followed by the next flight in May 2016
- A typical schedule is travel to and overnight in Portland on Thursday, fly to Dulles Airport on Friday, visit WWII, Vietnam, Korean, Navy, Marine, Air Force memorials and changing of the guard at Arlington Cemetery on Saturday, and back to Portland on Sunday
