The Honor Flights Network Gives War Veterans Free Trip to Washington DC
** To commemorate Veterans Day, OGTV is sharing this video to give thanks to the generations of veterans who have sacrificed so much to protect our freedom. **
The Honor Flights Network, a non-profit organization, makes it their year-long mission to provide free transportation to American veterans to Washington DC so that they can have the opportunity to reflect on their service. From the Korean War to the Vietnam War and beyond, all Veterans are invited to participate, however, special consideration is given to our American Veterans who fought during WWII.
"I think this one of the greatest things for adults who haven't had the experience and for youth that come along, to realize what a great country we have," noted veteran Raymond Leak. "Know that liberty wasn't given to us. It was paid for by sacrifice."
According to the Department of Veteran's Affairs, 640 WWII Veterans pass away everyday. In honor of their sacrifice, the Honor Flights Network gives priority to those who served during the global crisis before time runs out.
Our gratitude and love goes to all our veterans.
