A Memorial Salute to Veterans

From the Chronicle of Philanthropy:

When veterans gather in Washington this month to mark the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II in Europe, the crowd will include heroes who have waited a lifetime to see the memorial honoring their service and sacrifice. Some of them will be there thanks to Honor Flight, a charity that provides veterans free transportation to Washington so they can visit the stirring granite monument.

“For many of these World War II veterans, this is the first and likely the last opportunity for them to see a memorial that was 60 years in the making,” says Diane Gresse, Honor Flight’s executive director.
