Our mission is to honor the Western Michigan, WW II veteran by taking the veteran on an escorted round trip to Washington D.C., at “no charge” to the veteran. They will view the WW II Memorial and other monuments that they have earned the right to see. This trip will be conducted with emphases on safety, comfort, and enjoyment of the veteran.
On the Forms page you will find a nomination form for World War II veterans. Korean War veterans are able to make this trip (subject to availability). These veterans will NOT be charged to take part.
There is also a guardian volunteer form. Guardians will take the trip and act as guides and companions to the WW II vets who go. Guardians must provide their own $500 fee to cover expenses for the flight, bus tour of Washington D.C., shirts and meals. Priority will be given to named guardians for specific veterans, though applications will also be taken for others who may want to accompany any at-large veteran.
WW II nominations and Guardian nominations must be accompanied by a signed indemnity form, which you will also find on the Forms page.
“If you want to volunteer to help in the Legends Flight organization, in fund raising, setting up the return home welcoming ceremony etc., there is a form for you as well, that can be found on the Forms page. Any and all volunteer help will be appreciated.
DONATE: If you have a veteran in your family, especially if it is someone you know or loved who served in World War II, you can honor that memory by making a donation to Legends Flight in that veteran’s name.
Not only will you honor the service of your veterans, you will also be honoring the brothers and sisters in arms who fought and won world wars on two fronts. We are losing them at a rate of 900 per day. Your donations will be greatly appreciated, and help us take as many of our local veterans to Washington as possible.
