Of all of the wars in recent memory, it was World War II that truly threatened our very existence as a nation—and as a culturally diverse, free society. Now, with over one thousand World War II veterans dying each day, our time to express our thanks to these brave men and women is running out. We also want to express our thanks to the qualified Korean War veterans who fought in what has become known as “The Forgotten War”, and to Viet Nam War veterans.

|Helping Oregon veterans, willing and able of getting on a plane, visit THEIR memorial.|
|Top priority is given to America’s most senior heroes – survivors of World War II and any veteran with a terminal illness who wishes to visit THEIR memorial.|
|Since America felt it was important to build a memorial to the service and the ultimate sacrifice of her veterans, the Honor Flight Network and South Willamette Valley Honor Flight believes it’s equally important that they actually get to visit and experience THEIR memorial.|
