Read the full piece and you can appreciate why we at Honor Flight Rochester feel so privileged to travel with these incredible members of the Greatest Generation.

We have so much to learn from your humble sense of dignity, lessons so easily forgotten in the rush of our modern life. There is more to heroism than actions in battle. We are forever grateful for the lives you have led, and the life you gave this nation, by serving together those six decades ago. It is an honor just to get to know you and we salute you all.

Mission 72 (49 vets)
June 18-19
Unfortunately veterans cannot choose what flight they will travel on due to medical and logistic issues associated with the flight process. We also encourage veterans from the Syracuse and Buffalo area's to visit and register with their local Honor Flight hubs before registering with Rochester Honor Flight.
