2011.10 Honor Portraits by Erik Stellmach
Honor Flight Network is a non-profit organization created solely to honor America’s veterans for all their sacrifices. We transport our heroes to Washington, D.C. to visit and reflect at their memorials. Top priority is given to the senior veterans – World War II survivors, along with those other veterans who may be terminally ill. Of all of the wars in recent memory, it was World War II that truly threatened our very existence as a nation—and as a culturally diverse, free society. Now, with over one thousand World War II veterans dying each day, our time to express our thanks to these brave men and women is running out.
In Marion County we have approximately 2,500 World War II Veterans. Because of this large amount, Honor Flight recognized the need to come into our community to send as many Marion County veterans as possible to the World War II memorial. Currently, we are organizing a flight to carry our veterans, guardians, and medical staff to the memorial in Washington, D.C.
These are ALL set to a 5x7, If you would like a different size (8x10) print please "Contact Us". ***Partial proceeds of photo sales will go to Ocala Honor Flight***
It is time for this community to give back to these veterans as they have already given so much in order to protect our country. Visit: http://www.ocalahonorflight.org
