"Honor Flight," a documentary about four living World War II veterans and a Midwest community which comes together to give them the trip of a lifetime, will be airing at the AMC Loews Metroplex in Levittown on Thursday, Feb. 28 at 7:30 p.m.
The film is being called a heartwarming documentary which recognizes the "greatest generation" for their service in World War II:
"Volunteers race against the clock to fly thousands of WWII veterans to Washington, DC to see the memorial constructed for them in 2005, nearly 60 years after their epic struggle. The trips are called “Honor Flights” and for the veterans, who are 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 surprises that deeply move all who are involved. 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 film is presented by Joe Perrone and the United Veterans Organizations of Nassau County.
