The purpose of Wiregrass Honor Flight is to fly WWII Veterans living in the Wiregrass area to Washington, DC to visit the memorial dedicated to honor their service and their sacrifices for our country.
On 29 May 2004, the World War II Memorial was dedicated to honor "The Greatest Generation." Regrettably today, very few of these elderly veterans have the funds, knowledge or strength to complete a conventional trip to Washington D.C., via commercial airline, car or bus.
It is our mission to honor as many of these selfless "ordinary people who saved the world" as we can by providing them an all expenses paid trip to visit their memorial in Washington D.C.
Our program operates only on donations from local civic organizations and individuals from around the state.
Our volunteer guardians pay their own way for the pleasure of personally accompanying the veterans throughout the day, including escorting them on and off the aircraft and buses as well as to the WWII Memorial, Arlington National Cemetery, and any other stops along the trip.
The flights, deluxe tour bus service, t-shirts, scooters, wheel chairs, oxygen and meals are FREE to our Veterans.
There are currently no future flights scheduled at this time.
