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.
South Willamette Valley Honor Flight update - Between October 2012
and May 2014, 210 WWII veterans from Lane, Linn, Lincoln, and Benton counties were transported to Washington D.C. on our Honor Flights to be recognized for their service to America. We thank you for your generous support.
The next Honor Flight for 2014 will be held on Oct. 16 – 19. Positions on a Honor Flight are filled in the order applications are received.

|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.|
