Flying With Honor
The mission of the Honor Flight Network is simple: To give veterans access to military memorials by providing transport. "I had the opportunity to observe an Honor Flight arrival last year, and it was incredibly moving," said DDG's communications and content director Holly Leber. "Veterans from World War II, Vietnam and Korea, many of them in wheelchairs, filed through the terminal while young service members and Boy Scouts lined up to applaud them and shake their hands. I've never been more grateful for a flight delay."
"It warmed my heart to see that The Daily Do Good wrote about the Honor Flight Network," DDG reader Bethany posted on Facebook. "My Grandpa was part of an Honor Flight in 2015 and it seemed to be a wonderful thing for him. The volunteers (my sister) and I met when we met up with him at the WWII memorial were all lovely and kind."
