Campbell Nissan of Edmonds and Everett and Campbell Volkswagen of Edmonds & SPIRIT 105.3 are partnering with Puget Sound Honor Flight to honor America’s Veterans. Will you join us?
The Honor Flight Program helps veterans visit their memorials in Washington D.C. The memorials allow America to honor the service and the ultimate sacrifice of veterans, it is equally important that veterans actually get to visit and experience their memorial and be thanked for their service.
Priority is given to the senior veterans-WWII survivors, along with those other veterans who may be terminally ill. Outside of these parameters veterans are chosen on a first come first served basis, based on date the application is received.
Currently, four “One Last Mission” trips are scheduled per year. Any veteran who resides in Western Washington and served active duty during WWII, Korean or Vietnam wars are encouraged to apply for an Honor Flight. Each veteran’s trip cost over $1,000, thanks to donations, veterans pay nothing.
Already, over 100,000 have made this cathartic journey. King 5 Evening covered one of these trips and you’ll see the emotional impact and importance these trips have for our veterans.
