The Honor Flight is an organization which works to raise money to send World War II veterans to Washington, DC, on a one-day flight so they may tour the World War II Memorial.

Each flight cost is approximately $60,000, organizers note, but benefits and fund-raisers make it possible for veterans to make the trips free of charge.
