As a military family, we understand that the freedoms we enjoy in our great country were bought through the sacrifices of our nation's veterans. Mike has gotten the opportunity to be part of the color guard that welcomes home these heros from their Honor Flight and it is truly an emotional and impactful experience.
The American Veteran is one of our nations greatest treasures - the men and women who answer our nation’s call at its greatest time of need. At Honor Flight Houston, our mission is to thank and pay tribute to these heroes – especially our World War II Veterans - by taking them to Washington, D.C. for two days of honor and remembrance at NO COST to them.
Time is of the essence, as current statistics show that we are losing World War II Veterans at the rate of approximately 640 per day. This means there are approximately only 855,070 Veterans remaining of the 16 million who served our nation in World War II.
Each Honor Flight costs approximately $1,000 per veteran to make the trip to their memorials in Washington, D.C., so we would love your help in supporting our amazing veterans and this important charity.
