Joining the Dream Heroes for Veterans monthly giving club is the best way to make veterans’ Dreams come true. You’ll receive regular updates on the veterans you have helped and the Dreams you make possible.
U.S. Navy and Vietnam veteran David dreams of taking an Honor Flight to Washington, DC to pay his respects at the World War II Memorial, the U.S. Navy Memorial, and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall.
But he can’t make such a momentous journey alone.
The trip David dreams of taking celebrates America’s veterans by inviting them to share in a day of honor at our nation’s memorials. They travel with other veterans to remember friends and comrades lost and share their stories and experiences with each other.
Many of David’s friends have taken that flight. He talks about the sights they saw, the friends they made, and the cheers from people holding signs and waiting at the airport to greet them.
That image of people gathered at the airport to cheer the arrival of Honor Flight veterans has really stuck with David. It’s as though even after all these years, he still needs to feel that his service is appreciated. As though he’s still longing for a heartfelt “welcome home.”
Honor Flights are free for veterans. But David’s medical team says he can only make that journey if someone goes along to take care of him.
So David turned to us for the funds to pay for his caretaker who volunteered to travel with him and take care of him every step of the way.
Dreams cover essential needs, bring families and loved ones together at the end and help veterans visit military memorials and attend pinning ceremonies.
