As the last of the Greatest Generation approach their final curtain call, we are witnesses to a tremendous loss as we embrace a precious opportunity. One WWII veteran passes away every 90 seconds. They take their stories and history and enormous bravery with them.

Stars and Stripes Honor Flight flies WWII veterans and terminally ill veterans of other wars to visit their memorial in Washington D.C. They also strive to create opportunities for experiential learning for students and the community at large.

The movie Honor Flight is one of those opportunities. It is a documentary about four living WWII veterans and a Midwest community that came together to give them the trip of a lifetime.

You can watch the trailer at bit.ly/VetDayVideo.
