SAMVOTA - Honour Flight participation

The flights and tours that Honor Flight, Houston provide to World War II veterans are absolutely FREE. It is a nonprofit and is governed by the Honor Flight Network.

Most treat this as their final mission to say goodbye and pay their respects to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice – a total of 40480 USA men and woman died during the war.

They get to see that the cost of the war and the remembrance of their mates will not be forgotten by future generations.
