OLLI & The South Plains Honor Flight Organization host “Honor Flight” movie-May 7 at 6:30pm

"Honor Flight" is a heartwarming documentary about four living WW II veterans and a Midwest community coming together to give them the trip of a lifetime. Volunteers race against the clock to fly a planeload of WW II veterans to Washington, D.C., to see the memorial constructed for them in 2005, nearly 60 years after the War. The trips are called "Honor Flights" and for the veterans, who are in their late 80s and early 90s, it's often the first time they've been thanked and the last trip of their lives. The 24-hour journey is full of surprises that deeply move all who are involved. While the Honor Flight program is meant to give something back to these humble heroes, the goodness they embody and their appreciation for life in freedom transforms the lives of everyone they meet.

The South Plains Honor Flight Organization sent their first planeload of local veterans last year and hope to do it again. This invitation is limited to the first 180 individuals who call OLLI at 806.742.6554. The viewing of this documentary is free on May 7. Please mark your calendar and join us!
