Nearly 16 million men and women, most in their teens served our country during World War II. They were ordinary people who became extraordinary heroes after the attack on Pearl Harbor brought America into World War II. They watched comrades die terrible deaths on the beaches and in foxholes, were wounded in body and spirit and bore witness to horrifying inhumanity. They liberated Europe from the Nazi occupation and saved many from the unimaginable in concentration camps. They defeated Japan at a great human cost. Then they, the "Greatest Generation," came home, went back to their families, their work and their lives, never seeking any recognition for the freedom and liberty we all enjoy.

Currently there are just over 7200 World War II veterans remaining in the State of Idaho. Many of these veterans because of raising families, earning a living or just the passage of time have never had an opportunity to visit the memorials in Washington D.C. dedicated to their service and sacrifice. We are losing World War II veterans at a rate of 1000 per day across the United States so our window of opportunity is quickly diminishing.

Honor Flight of Idaho is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to giving World War II veterans an opportunity they may otherwise never experience with a trip to view their memorials in Washington D.C., at no cost to them. They leave from Boise and travel to Washington D.C. in a group with other World War II veterans, each veteran having a Guardian to help ensure they have no difficulty being involved or getting around during the trip.

Memorials visited include but are not limited to, World War II, Iwo Jima, Vietnam, Lincoln, Korea, Washington Monument, Navy, Air Force, Fords Theater, Arlington National Cemetery, the White House and the Capital. Some of these are drive thur only because of time constraints. 

With your generous donation to Honor Flight of Idaho, you can help us say, "Thank you from our hearts for your sacrifice. You stood for freedom and won."

We cannot undertake this ambitious goal of taking Idaho World War II veterans in the short time we have remaining without help from, businesses, corporations and citizens, like you. Please give generously to help us achieve our mission.
