Veterans can sign up now to join a 2024 honor flight. Lebanon Friends of the Fort is teaming up with Association of the United States Army (AUSA) to help veterans visit memorials in Washington DC. Honor Flight of the Ozarks is an organization that offers all expenses paid flights to veterans. The flight is $160,000 dollars and the Honor Flight of the Ozarks raises the money for the flight. John Gideon with Friends of the Fort says its a one day event.
The veterans are allowed to bring family on the flight with them, but it can not be a spouse.
Gideon says there is a huge celebration when the veterans arrive home.
