The Coastal Georgia Honor Flight has been established to honor community veterans for all of their sacrifices. The mission is to fly heroes via private, chartered airliner, from coastal Georgia to Washington, D.C. so that they may reflect at their national memorials.
Priority is given to World War II veterans, then Korean and Vietnam War survivors. Veterans who are terminally ill from any conflict get top priority. These heroes travel absolutely free.
Sites visited during the one day trip include the World War II, Korean and Vietnam Memorials, the Lincoln Memorial, Arlington National Cemetery, including the famous Changing of the Guard Ceremony, as well as the Marine Corps (Iwo Jima), Air Force and Navy Memorials as time permits. Below,
