Douglas MacArthur once said, “The soldier above all others prays for peace, for it is the soldier who must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war.”
Giving back to veterans who gave so much is the goal of Blue Ridge Honor flight, and since 2006, Jeff Miller and his Blue Ridge Honor Flight team have taken our WWII, Korean War, and Vietnam War veterans to Washington, D.C, to visit those memorials dedicated to their service
HonorAir and the National Honor Flight programs are responsible for flying over 200,000 WWII, Korean and Vietnam veterans to our nation's capitol to experience their memorials.
The veterans who had patriotically lifted their hands to their hearts many times in the 61 years since the war ended had never seen anything like the hero's reception they received in Washington.
"CBS Sunday Morning" aired a moving feature about the HonorAir effort in September 2006. Click here to view this lovely tribute.
On May 4, 2019, they will fly again. Learn more about this great mission, how you can get involved or send a deserving veteran to DC for a day of honor.
