World War II veterans are often called our greatest generation. It is now our turn to honor them with Central Valley Honor Flight.
The mission of Central Valley Honor Flight is to fly local veterans to Washington D.C. in order to visit the World War II memorial - and other memorials dedicated to honoring their service and sacrifice.
Priority for these local Honor Flights will be given to WWII veterans, but veterans of all ages and service are encouraged to apply. The first Central Valley Honor Flight will depart from the Fresno Yosemite International Airport on October 29, 2013.
The Honor Flight recipients will be honored with an emotional ceremony and sendoff from the Fresno airport, a reception in Washington D.C., a tour of their memorial and other landmarks, plus much more. There is no cost to the veterans selected for the Honor Flight.
To make this dream of a Central Valley Honor Flight come true, we need your help.
Central Valley Honor Flight has also set up a text line for donations. Text cvhonor to 41444 to make a $10 donation.
Please note: You can make larger donations via the texting option as well. For example, you can text cvhonor30 to 41444 to give a $30 donation. Using the code cvhonor40 will donate $40. Just add the higher denomination to the end of cvhonor code to increase the donation.
