Thank you to the several Southwest Chicago Post readers who have reminded us to encourage everyone to consider volunteering with the Honor Flight Chicago organization, which gives Chicago-area military veterans (primarily World War II) free round-trip air transportation (as well as VIP treatment) to Washington, D.C. to tour the National World War II Memorial.
Honor Flight Chicago, founded in 2008, is part of a nationwide Honor Flight Network---which, since 2005, has flown tens of thousands of military veterans to and from our nation's capital.
Honor Flight Chicago volunteers we have spoken with say their work is easy, emotion-packed and highly rewarding.

Interested? There are many ways to volunteer---large and small. Check out the Honor Flight Chicago website for more details.
The next Honor Flight at Midway Airport is set for Wednesday, September 12. There are also two flights in October.
