Honor Flight Long Island

Honor Flight Long Island is looking for World War II Veterans to travel to Washington D.C. to visit the WWII Memorial

Honor Flight Long Island is looking for World War II Veterans to travel to Washington D.C. to visit the WWII Memorial.  This is a one day trip to Washington D.C. and back.  You leave early in the morning from Long Island MacArthur Airport and return that evening. 

The trip includes round trip air fare, ground transportation from the airport to Washington D.C. and back, lunch and dinner.  The best thing is that the trip is FREE to the Veteran.  If you are interested in making the trip, please contact Honor Flight
Long Island at 631-702-2423 or email to vbennett@southamptontownny.gov.  You can also visit their website www.honorflightlongisland.org and download the application.
 
If you are not a WWII Veteran, but wish to take the trip, you can do so as a guardian to assist WWII Veterans who require assistance.  Guardians are asked to make a $275 donation to assist with expenses.  That application can also be found on the website.
 
It is the intention of Honor Flight Long Island to honor as many of these selfless "ordinary people who saved the world" as we can by providing them a FREE trip to visit their memorial.
