Storyline

Honor Flight is a feature-length documentary that chronicles a community coming together to honor living World War II veterans, one last time. The film follows a devoted team of Midwest volunteers as they race against the clock to send every local WWII veteran to the Washington, D.C. memorials built in their honor. The more they do, the more the cause takes on a life of its own. The film captures Honor Flight from the point of view of the volunteers and veterans, who share their war and life stories along the way. The trip itself is a profound event, filled with surprises and acts of appreciation from a grateful nation. The all-but-forgotten veterans are heroes once again. The vets, volunteers and even complete strangers are often moved to tears by the power of the experience. Throughout the day, veterans begin to share their war stories - sometimes for the first time ever. After the trip, many vets say it was one of the greatest days of their lives.

One of the best documentary film that means a lot to us all
12 November 2013 | by (Kingwood, TX) – See all my reviews

I have watched this film on 11Nov13 at Minute Maid Park as a part of "Astros salute the Veterans" event, http://houston.astros.mlb.com/hou/community/salute_to_vets.jsp It was shown on a huge screen to thousands who were there, including 100 yr. young WW2 vet, Gary Morris; and our friend Andy Ferguson who is 92 yr. It was truly moving story, filled with lives of real WW2 vets and a small group of people motivated and devoted to help this program realized from a small town of Port Washington, WI. Those vets have been true role model of American soldiers who served, sacrificed, yet returned and quietly went back to start and raised a family, showing them in life what it means to be a true American. They should be our heroes, yet they humbly confessed that the true heroes were those who have died on the fields. I share this sentiment as my own from a different era. May we have lived ours worthy of their sacrifices; and may our children and grandchildren remember and carry on their legacies.

P.S. I was also privileged with watch the film with a good friend who happened to be a Korean War (yes, it was a war not just a conflict as some have insisted.) vet. Without his and others services, I wouldn't be here to express this gratitude.
