A World War II veterans search is on in the Midwest!


Applications and more info is right here.

We need your help. Nationally, we are losing nearly 800 of these heroes every day. We are currently trying to locate our WWII Veterans locally and need everyone’s assistance in doing so. Estimates show more than 1,500 WWII Veterans live in the Greater Saint Louis area, but actual numbers are unknown. Our call to action is to get Greater Saint Louis Honor Flight connected with all of these heroes in order to give them the opportunity to experience an Honor Flight. We are still filling seats for flights we have added for 2013 and know that there are more than enough WWII Veterans to fill many more of our flights.

We really want to make it clear that there is no charge to the veterans for this day of honor. All they have to do is fill out an application from our website and we will get them on a flight. We are really in need of WWII Veterans to fill out our remaining flights for 2013.  We are making a big push to find the WWII Veterans for our remaining flights. We have vacancy!

Trip Details:
The trip is a one day trip to DC and back. We make stops at WW II Memorial, Korean and Vietnam Memorials, Arlington National Cemetery for the changing of the guard, Iwo Jima Memorial and the last stop is the Air Force Memorial. Each veteran is matched up 1 on 1 with a Guardian volunteer who assists the veteran throughout the day. We try and make it as easy on the veterans as possible and we get nothing but high praise from the Veterans who make the trip. We rent a nice coach bus that picks us up at the airport and shuttles us to all the sites and then back to the airport. We provide food and beverage throughout the day.

Please share this with anybody that would know of a WW II veteran.

God Bless our military!
