For the first time in its organization’s history, Old Glory Honor Flight is going international. The non-profit veterans organization announced its plans Monday to bring 50 veterans on a two-week tour back to sites of the Vietnam War. Old Glory Honor Flight, which usually only brings veterans for day trips to Washington D.C., last did a special mission in 2012 when it traveled to Pearl Harbor. Old Glory Honor Flight President Drew MacDonald says veterans have been asking for similar trips ever since and is happy things have finally worked out.
Veterans for the “Old Glory Honor Flight: Return to Nam” trip in February 2019 will be selected via a lottery. You can learn more about the trip and how you can apply by visiting here.
