For years now, Honor Flight Northern California has been flying veterans to Washington, D.C. to allow them the opportunity to visit and reflect at their memorials. For many aging veterans this is their memorials. For many aging veterans this is their only opportunity to see the tributes erected to their valor and sacrifice for our freedom. With priority granted to WWII veterans, Honor Flight Northern California provides all-expenses-paid trips to and from our nation’s capital. Many of these brave service men and women benefit from the use of a wheelchair during these whirlwind, as the full journey takes place in less than 48 hours, start to finish.
