On Thursday, March 11, 2010 when Spielberg and Hanks addressed 250 veterans from around the country at the memorial constructed in the vets' honor, 35 New England veterans were there, including five from New Hampshire. It was a journey made possible thanks to HBO's urge to make a meaningful splash, and to Honor Flight ...Network, a rema...rkable national effort that has flown more than 40,000 WWII vets to Washington in the past five years, for a proper thank you.
Honor Flight New England was established in 2009. Based inManchester, New Hampshire, the Chapter has flown over 100 WWII Vets to their memorial in Washington DC. As we begin flying in 2010 we hope you will support our cause in whatever way, with whatever amount you can spare. This is a volunteer group that does everything from the logistics, to accompanying the vets, to organizing fundraising for the trips.
Take a few minutes to review and appreciate the various photos. Remember if not for the "Greatest Generation", could we do what we enjoy?
Time is of the essence to show "The Greatest Generation" that their sacrifices are not forgotten.
