Schedule of the ASTROS SALUTE TO VETERANS Event on Monday Nov 11th:
Honor Flight is an inspiring documentary about living World War II veterans and a community coming together to give them the trip of a lifetime. Volunteers race against the clock to fly thousands of WWII veterans to Washington, DC to see the memorial constructed for them in 2004, nearly 60 years after their epic struggle.
The trips are called "Honor Flights" and for the veterans 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 deeply moving surprises. It's uncommon for World War II veterans to talk about the War, but the Honor Flight experience brings their stories out. Many veterans say, with the exception of their wedding day and the birth of their children, the trip is the best day of their life.
The Honor Flight Network is a nonprofit organization that has flown over 100,000 veterans to Washington, DC. It consists of 117 hubs across the country, including Honor Flight Houston, which was established in May 2013.
FREE Astros Salute to Veterans Tickets will be available at the ballpark gates for entry on Monday, November 11th. ADVANCE RESERVATIONS ARE NOT REQUIRED. PLEASE BRING FAMILY AND FRIENDS AND FELLOW PATRIOTS!
