In honor of my Dad and every veteran of WWII, this film, this program gives us the privilege of thanking those who secured our freedom - Mary Domes.

We all watched the movie and got such a better understanding of what we really did get to see and experience at the memorial.

I had the privilege to see this documentary in a theater recently. We took a 93 year old WWII Veteran with us. It was an amazing and moving experience.
The documentary is about a community that comes together to take World War II Veterans to see the Memorial in Washington DC, at no cost to them. It was a project that took on a life of its own and so many were able to go.
I lost my father over 25 years ago. He and his brother served together. He never talked about the war. This documentary tells us that the soldiers "came home from the war, put their duffle bags in the basement and went out and got jobs." Most of them never talked about their experiences and now we are losing those Veterans at the rate of over 900 per day, and their stories and experiences are going with them. This documentary got the Veterans to open up and talk about it, many for the first time.
We have the freedom we have today because of them, and we need to hear their stories.
On our drive home, the gentleman with us started talking about the documentary, and then some of his experiences in the Navy.
I have just pre-ordered this documentary, and I plan to show it to all my family and friends.
I hope that each and every Veteran has the opportunity to go to Washington DC and visit their Memorial. They earned it.
I hope that Honor Flight is an organization that continues to take these Veterans, and doesn't end with the Veterans in this one community.

My 85th Birthday gift to my proud WWII Navy Vet Dad was an Honor Flight in October 2011. This movie brought it all back--the excitement, the tears, the pride of those exhausted but thrilled members of our Greatest Generation. "Honor Flight" came to our local theater at a stressful time in my life when my expectations of folks were pretty low. Seeing this movie and reliving our trip with Dad at my side IMMEDIATELY returned my perspective to the correct view--awe, humility and gratitude for our freedom, purchased by them then and being purchased by our Vets and Active Duty personnel today. "Thank you for your service" will never be enough. I intend to order at least one more copy on payday.

A proud and grateful daughter.

Over the past eight (8) years we have seen a lot of people who wanted to tell our story, a lot of videos and "documentaries" out there that have tried to capture the essence of what we are, who we are and what we do. All have fallen short until now. Director Dan Hayes and his crew at Freethink Media have hit a home run. The public groundswell, the synergy, and the patriotism that makes a community great is clearly and accurately depicted. The energy, selfless and resolve that makes America great is what makes this movie great. I laughed and cried during this movie more than once -- JUST like I do on every Honor Flight trip I have ever taken. I came away from the movie even more committed to our cause and more proud to be an American. I didn't think that was possible! Thank you Dan and Freethink for putting together one of the greatest documentaries I have ever seen.

Sincerely,

Earl Morse
Honor Flight Founder

Its hard to write a review five minutes after watching this film. I was lucky enough to order this on Pre-order direct and watched this right away. This is an amazing program to support. I strongly recommend everyone to watch this to remember what you forgot and who you may have forgotten. I think of my Grandfather, and how much I miss him along with all the times I didn't thank him. Simply amazing

I saw Honor Flight in the theater and am not ashamed to say I cried through most of it. Just an amazing story, this movie should be shown in schools every Veteran's Day. I ordered a copy to donate to my public Library. Can't recommend it enough.

This is an important movie. Tweens/teens are a spoiled group these days, with no idea why they have the freedoms they do. This movie should be mandatory screening in any middle/high school Social Studies/History class. The current generation is not informed on what The Greatest Generation did for them. Tweens/teens need to understand that these men were actually 18 years young, yet fought in battles as if they were adults. This movie will make you laugh, cry, and teach you to listen closely to the stories your older family members share. The Honor Flight program is amazing. Just watch it and you will understand why every review is a positive one.

This beautiful film is all about honor. It honors the WWII veterans. It honors our history. It honors our freedom.
Most importantly, I felt honored that those brave, strong men shared their stories with me.
I will never forget them and the sacrifices they made for our country.
The Honor Flight Network's mission is clearly shown, along with how much planning & work is involved in giving
these hero's their day of honor.
As you experience the day with them, you get a glimpse into their lives and families.
Many times I smiled, cried and cheered for them throughout the film.
They made me proud to be an American.
This generation will be gone soon...we should all try to learn from their example.
