What is the Western Slope Honor Flight?

The honor flight is a non-profit organization created solely to honor America's veterans for all of their sacrifices. The honor flight transports our heroes to Washington D.C. to visit and reflect at our national memorials. Top priority is given to the senior veterans - World War II survivors, along with those veterans who may be terminally ill. With over one thousand World War II veterans dying each day, our time to express our thanks to these brave men and women is limited. This trip is absolutely free to all veterans.
