Honor Flight offers virtual trip for veterans unable to travel
World War II and Korean War veterans who are unable to travel to Washington, D.C., with Honor Flight to see their memorials are invited to a virtual experience during a special luncheon.
According to a representative from Honor Flight Southern Nevada, some veterans cannot travel for the three-day, two-night trip because of health issues so the experience will be recreated during the Feb. 24 lunch, which is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
There is no cost for the lunch for veterans and each veteran can bring a guest, who must pay $25. The luncheon will include a video of the memorials visited on the trips and special recognition of the veterans’ service.
“I am heartened that we get to recognize those that are unable to see the memorials in person in Washington, D.C.,” said Belinda Morse, executive director of Honor Flight Southern Nevada. “We are honored to host this event and acknowledge those who served our great nation.”
Honor Flight Southern Nevada’s next flight is scheduled for April 27-29.
Applications are required for either the virtual experience or flight; they can be found at www.HonorFlightSouthernNevada.org.
