Honor Flight Nevada
Honor Flight Nevada has finally landed in Las Vegas and will lead a group of World War II veterans to Washington D.C. this spring to visit the National WWII Memorial on May 3,4 and 5th. The mission of Honor Flight is to transport America's veterans to Washington D.C. to visit those memorials dedicated to honor their service and sacrifices.
This will be the first Honor Flight Nevada to leave from Las Vegas. The first flight went out of Reno in October and many other veterans have flown to D.C. with other Honor Flights around the nation. Since then a hub was created in Las Vegas and is ready to secure the first flight. Honor Flight Nevada has veterans on a waiting list to go and more are signing up to participate.
Veterans are not permitted to pay for their trip: it is with generious donations and gifts from grateful citizens and corporations that provide for this experience. Top priority is given to America's most senior and frail veterans - survivors of World War II or any veteran with a terminal illness who wishes to visit their memorial.
The cost of each Honor Flight Nevada trip is approximately $65,000, all funded by corporate and private sector domains.
