Honor Flight: A Lasting Tribute

6:00pm - 8:00pm
Free, RSVP required before 5:00pm today!

This National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day—Dec. 7, 2012, at 6:00pm—the Honor Flight Network, the USO, and Blue Star Families invites you to help pay tribute to America’s World War II veterans at a special event featuring a screening of the documentary film “Honor Flight.” The event will be held, fittingly, at DAR Constitution Hall in DC. Join veterans, their families, and supporters to honor our greatest generation.

About the Film: “Honor Flight” is a powerful film about a Wisconsin community coming together to celebrate the World War II veterans in their lives and sending them on an unforgettable journey to visit their memorial in Washington, D.C. For veterans like Harvey Kurtz of Port Washington, WI, who was present at the iconic raising of the American flag at Iwo Jima, it’s the first time they’ve talked about the tragedies they witnessed. For many, their Honor Flight is the trip of a lifetime.

About the Cause: Honor Flight Network was founded in 2005 by a retired Air Force captain determined to make it possible for World War II veterans to see the memorial in Washington, D.C. created in their honor. Honor Flight has already escorted more than 100,000 World War II veterans. More are still waiting. Honor Flight seeks to give them the opportunity before it's too late.
