Wiregrass Honor Flight Hub gratefully accepts donations to help our noble mission. Donations are accepted from all individuals (except WWII veterans as we feel that they have given more than enough to our country). Additionally, we invite schools, professional groups, companies, civic entities and especially veteran service organizations to contribute. The Honor Flight Network operates under the IRS 501 C(3) rules for non-profit organizations.
Your donation will be used to help transport veterans from the Wiregrass area to Washington, DC to visit THEIR memorial. Our top priority is veterans with terminal illnesses and World War II Veterans who have waited over 60 years for their memorial. Most of these remaining senior veterans will never see the WWII Memorial without the help of compassionate people like you. Many of our WWII veterans had previously given up all hope of ever seeing the memorial that honors their service and the ultimate sacrifice of their comrades.
The time to act is NOW. Unfortunately, approximately 1,500 World War II veterans died each DAY. The average life expectancy for an American is 74.4 years. The youngest WWII veteran is over 80 years old. Sadly, in a few years almost all of our WWII veterans will be gone.
This trip will probably be their "last hurrah," the last time they will be recognized as heroes and conquering victors that collectively and literally saved the world. All day long they will be thanked, recognized and admired for their service. These veterans will remember the kindness and adoration shown to them for the rest of their lives. They will all have a deeper appreciation for how much their country loves them and will miss them.
Checks should be made out to Army Aviation Museum Foundation-Wiregrass Honor Flight (AAMF-Wiregrass Honor Flight).
