As today is Veteran's Day, I'm donating to the Honor Flight Network.
From their web site:
|Mission Statement:||Transport America's veterans to Washington, D.C. to visit those memorials dedicated to honor their service and sacrifices.|
|Goal:||Helping every single veteran in America, willing and able of getting on a plane or a bus, visit THEIR memorial.|
|Priority:||Top priority is given to America's most senior heroes — survivors of World War II and any veteran with a terminal illness who wishes to visit THEIR memorial. The program will naturally transition to Korean War, Vietnam War and all other veterans who served, on a chronological basis.|
|ELIGIBILITY:||All men and women serving stateside or overseas.|
|Philosophy:||Since America felt it was important to build a memorial to the service and the ultimate sacrifice of her veterans, the Honor Flight Network believes it's equally important that they actually get to visit and experience THEIR memorial.|
|Motto:||“We can’t all be heroes. Some of us have to stand on the curb and clap as they go by.” - Will Rogers|
