The veterans of WWII, Korea, and Vietnam wars were chosen for this mock trip because they are unable to physically make a flight to Washington D.C. to see their Memorials.
Family members and guardians helped the Utah Honor Flight crew make their experience one that will not only bring back memories, but make new ones.
The Utah Honor Flight is a non-profit organization that runs solely on donations. The organization has taken hundreds of veterans to see the wall and other memorials in our nation's capitol. While priority is given to World War II veterans, other veterans from Korea, and Vietnam have also traveled to see the monuments free of charge. Guardians on the trip must pay a sponsorship fee.
The Utah Honor Flight will be taking another trip to see the Washington DC Memorials September 16-19.
25 Veterans will be taking the flight from southern Utah with their guardians. Volunteers are always needed to help welcome them home and make their trip a memorable one.
