Priority status given to World War II, Korea veterans
World War II and Korea veterans have priority status for Freedom Honor Flight. With two flights expected for 2014, Freedom Honor Flight expects to be able to serve all the World War II veterans currently on the waiting list. Officials estimate that in the 25 counties the hub now serves, there remain more than 5,000 World War II veterans who haven’t yet participated in an Honor Flight. The group encourages them to apply.
Physicians and paramedics accompanying each flight help with oxygen, medication and personal needs, enabling those with chronic health problems or disabilities to attend. A guardian assigned to each veteran provides additional assistance.
Applications are available here.
