This amazing organization serves to bring Chicagoland's WWII veterans to Washington D.C. to visit their WWII Memorial. My father was on one of their Honor Flight in 2008. The entire amazing day is completely free of charge for the vets, and to say that they are given the royal treatment doesn't even begin to cover it. There aren't enough superlatives to describe how wonderful the Honor Flight Chicago organization is and the attention to detail that goes into each and every one of their special flights.
Please, if you know a WWII veteran, whether in the Chicago area or elsewhere, let them know about Honor Flight.
