With an estimated 32,000 WWII Veterans living in the West Central Florida area, we have a huge challenge. We need continued support from grateful Americans like yourselves, and the generous participation of area corporations to honor these War Era Veterans with a tour to D.C. in the manner they deserve.
PRIORITY – Top priority is given to WWII Veterans and terminally ill Veterans that have not yet visited their memorial.
PLEASE NOTE: We schedule our veterans first in and first out. We currently have over 300 WWII Veterans on our waiting list. Once flown, we will begin to fly our Korean War Veterans followed by Vietnam Veterans and continue in chronological order of conflict. They all have given so much and it is time we show them that their efforts are not forgotten. Please consider donating, volunteering, and/or accompanying a Veteran to D.C. as their Guardian. It will be a lifetime memory for you.
