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.

Everyone Should See This Film! A Great Tribute to Our WW11 Veterans
10 December 2012 | by (Washington- DC) – See all my reviews

I had the great opportunity to view the film " Honor Flights" Dec 7th at the DAR Constitution Hall in Washington- DC. This film gave a very good background on the creation of Honor Flights and then featured some well deserving WW11 Vets who shared some of their stories with all their humbleness and humor. I felt proud, with immense emotion and I felt grateful for this GREATEST generation of men and women who when the call came to defend their country for our freedoms- they and their buddies signed up at the front lines- They were unlike any young man of today- they smoked and joked, chased women and wanted a shiny car. They gave everything they had without complaining and lost so much- they came home and moved on with their lives- marrying and having families and happily lived along amongst some terrifying memories. This movie gave these guys a chance to feel like the stars that deserve to shine far brighter than that anyone from Hollywood ever could. This movie gave them a chance to tell some of their stories and to feel special. I highly urge parents to take their children, grandparents to take their grand kids- This movie is a must ! Freedom isn't free and these guys gave it all for ours... Let's show them how grateful we are! I
