We leave General Wayne A. Downing Peoria International Airport early in the morning, fly to the D.C. area and head straight to the World War II Memorial. Once there, our Veterans and their chaperones have time to visit the amazing memorial, surrounded by the majestic Capitol Mall.
We also visit the Korean War Veterans Memorial and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. Our day concludes with a viewing of “The Changing of the Guard” at Arlington National Cemetery.
For Veterans and chaperones alike, an opportunity to participate in an Honor Flight trip is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience..
The Greater Peoria Honor Flight will take to the air on April 29, 2014. Please send in your applications if you wish to go as a Veteran or a Guardian. We are looking forward to serving more of our local Veterans!
