Recruiting the next group for a U.P. Honor Flight


The Upper Peninsula Honor Flight Network is helping honor another group of U.P. veterans with a trip of a lifetime.

The non–profit organization escorts local heroes to Washington D.C. for a chance to see the memorials dedicated in their honor.

Senior veterans are a top priority, especially finding men and women who fought in World War Two.

Guardians and volunteers are also in high demand to help chaperone through the sites.

Anyone can sign up for the role with a $500 donation.

Highlights of the tour include stops at the World War II Memorial, the Vietnam Wall, and a concert from U–S Air Force Band, which will be live–streamed at the Peter White Public Library.

But pictures don’t do the experience justice.

If you want to be an Honor Flight Guardian or sign–up a veteran you know, head to their website at upper peninsula honor flight dot org.

This year’s flight takes off May first.
