FLAGS OF OUR HEROES
HONOR FLIGHT DAYTON’S TRIBUTE TO DECEASED
WWII/KOREAN WAR/VIETNAM WAR VETERANS
In addition to escorting WWII, Korean War, and terminally-ill Veterans from any war to Washington, DC, Honor Flight Dayton also proudly honors deceased Veterans who never got to see their memorials. We accomplish this at the memorials by conducting a ceremony that is referred to as Flags of Our Heroes. It is our desire to show the respect so richly deserved to the deceased Veterans who never had the opportunity to visit their memorials.
For those who would like to participate in this program, Honor Flight Dayton requests a 5 x 7 photo of the Veteran, preferably while in the service. As part of the ceremony, we photograph an American flag along with the deceased Veteran’s picture at their appropriate memorial.
After the trip, the family will receive an 8 x 10 color photo and a certificate from Honor Flight Dayton honoring their Veteran. The original photo will also be returned at this time. There is no charge for participating in this program as this is Honor Flight Dayton’s way of showing our respect and appreciation to deceased Veterans.
