Flying our Vets for free to the WW2 Memorial in Washington DC (VIDEO)

Allen Bergeron, chairman of Honor Flight Austin, explains the mission of transporting Veterans to the World War II Memorial in Washington DC.

We are losing World War II veterans at the rate of approximately 640 per day. Honor Flight Austin will continue do whatever it takes to fulfill the dreams of our Veterans and help our heroes travel absolutely free to visit their Memorial. In the future, the Honor Flight Austin Network will also pay tribute to America’s other heroes who served during the Korean and Vietnam Wars, followed by veterans of more current wars. They, too, have given so much and it’s time we show them that their efforts are not forgotten.
