WWII veterans paid the price to keep the world free.
Now it’s our turn to pay tribute to them.
More than 60 years ago, America’s Greatest Generation fought oppression around the world. A few short years ago, the World War II Memorial was dedicated on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. in their honor. The veterans who lived to see that long-awaited day in 2004 were in their eighties or older. Even now, most of these veterans have never visited the monument that honors their sacrifice.
Honor Flight Tallahassee is part of the Honor Flight Network, a national organization that exists for one reason: To take every WWII and Korean War veteran who is capable of going and has not seen it, to see their monument at no cost to the veteran.
