Honor Flight : Honor Flight is a non profit organization created solely to honor America’s veterans for all their sacrifices. We fly our heroes to Washington, DC to visit and reflect at their memorials. Top priority is given to the senior veterans – WW II survivors along with those other veterans that may be terminally ill. Partnering with HonorAir in Hendersonville, North Carolina and Hero Flight in Provo, Utah, we formed the “Honor Flight Network.” Together, we are aggressively expanding our programs to other cities across the nation in 2007. Based on recent statistics, we are losing WW II veterans at the rate of 1200 per day. Honor Flight will continue do whatever it takes to fulfill the dreams of our veterans and, very importantly, our senior heroes travel absolutely free.

Vets Roll Call : From their site: This is in reply to the numerous emails we receive wanting to know, " Who are these guys ? " Here goes: For years I wondered why there wasn't an all-in-one, fully functional portal for veterans, one that eliminated the "needle in the haystack " approach to finding one another. Tired of waiting any longer and realizing the sense of urgency for many... VETSRollCall was born.
Space A Travel, Travel for nearly free : Space Available Flight, better known as Space A or military hops, is a unique privilege provided to servicemembers, retirees and their families.

2004 Veterans Day Message from the Secretary of Defense

American Forces Press Service

In 1834, the American patriot, Daniel Webster, told the United States Senate: "God grants liberty only to those who love it, and are always ready to guard and defend it."

Fortunately for America, for more than 200 years our nation always has been blessed with patriots who believed as Webster did, and who have proudly stepped forward -- ready to fight and, if necessary, to die to ensure that liberty is defended.

We have a name for these patriots -- we call them veterans. And, in their honor, America has set aside a special day each year – a day to recognize their courage and their commitment to our country, and to tell them once again of our deep appreciation for their dedicated service.

Through every conflict, in every era, they have battled tyrannies of every kind. While the names of those tyrannies have changed – from fascism to Nazism to communism -- the nature of dangers they posed to peace and freedom have all been serious.

Today freedom is again threatened -- this time by a new tyranny, the tyranny of extremism – of terrorism. And, again, patriots have stepped forward. They are there -- in Afghanistan, in Iraq, and wherever our liberty is at risk -- guarding freedom, and bringing hope to millions who once lived in fear.

To those on guard today, and to the veterans of every war on whose shoulders they stand -- the living, the departed, and the missing -- you have our deepest gratitude for your service and your sacrifice.

May God bless you all. And may God continue to bless the United States of America.
Donald H. Rumsfeld Secretary of Defense
