Time is of the Essence.
Based on recent 2008 statistics, we are losing World War II veterans at the rate of approximately 1,000 per day. Honor Flight Network will continue do whatever it takes to fulfill the dreams of our veterans and help our senior heroes travel absolutely free.
Subsequent to the World War II veterans, our efforts will then focus on our Korean War and then Vietnam War veterans, honoring them similarly.
Honor Flight New England joined with the national organization Honor Flight Network in the Spring of 2009 and is a non-profit organization created solely to honor America's veterans for all of their sacrifices. Through generous donations we transport our heroes to Washington, D.C., to visit and reflect at their memorials AT NO COST TO THE VETERAN. 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. Now, with over one thousand World War II veterans dying each day, our time to express our thanks to these brave men and women is running out.
Honoring All Our Veterans.
Our first flight was on June 13, 2009. It was a humbling experince to be with these WWII Veterans on our maiden voyage to D.C. Of those 50 Veterans and Guardians traveling with us on board were 14 World War II Prisoners of War and 5 World War II Heroes,
including one hero that lost his sight while serving his country.
Please help us continue to make their dream of visiting THEIR memorial, a reality.
