Today is a very special day as we honor the service and sacrifice of our country’s veterans. For more than 200 years, these vets have selflessly served for the protection and betterment of our country. They deserve our respect, honor, recognition, and support. A few years ago, I came across an organization that helps pay tribute to the remaining WWII veterans and give them the homecoming they deserve.

Learn about this fascinating mission of HonorAir Knoxville as they take WWII and Korean War veterans from East Tennessee to the World War II Memorial in Washington DC. This memorial was built some 60 years after WWII ended, and for many of our veterans who served in WWII, this is their first time to see it. Upon their return trip home, they are flooded with family, friends, and members of the community who greet them at the airport and give them a welcoming they will never forget.
