I looked up the word VETERAN in the dictionary...
a person who has had long service or experience in an occupation, office, or the like: a veteran of the police force; a veteran of many sports competitions.
a person who has served in a military force, especially one who has fought in a war: a Vietnam veteran.
...and for lack of a better description, these definitions, while true, are quite blah.
Over the years our military has done so much for our country and they still do today! Our veterans are not just those who once served in the military; they are the ones who fought the battles, made the sacrifices, and helped to keep our country "The Home of the Free" because of them ... the BRAVE!
HONOR FLIGHT CHICAGO is helping to honor those veterans from the Greatest Generation...WWII.

Please take a few minutes to look at some pictures and videos of what Honor Flight Chicago and its volunteers do and how they are going above and beyond to help honor our veterans who went above and beyond for us!
