Honor Flight is a national network of local “hubs” dedicated to taking every veteran who is willing and able to Washington, D.C. to see their Memorial. Currently, the focus is on World War II veterans due to their age and the fact that the WWII Memorial didn’t open until 2004.
Foundation Services of Central Florida, Ocala is proud to be a three-year sponsor of the Ocala Honor Flight, dedicated to honoring our local veterans by transporting them annually to the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. We owe them a debt of gratitude and the gift of remembrance.
The images and accounts in these articles illustrate the importance of Honor Flight for our World War II Veterans. These aging War Heroes might not otherwise have been able to go to Washington, D.C. to see their Memorial, which only opened in 2004, due either to finances or health.
