Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Over a half-a-century after the end of World War II, the citizens of a close-knit Midwestern community unite to send the surviving veterans of that historic struggle to Washington, D.C. for the official unveiling of the WWII memorial in 2004. The trips, dubbed "Honor Flights", are the nation's way of giving thanks to the brave soldiers who laid their lives on the line in the name of freedom, and humbly returned home to continue their lives without ever seeking honor or glory. As the stories of the surviving veterans and their journeys to the memorial unfold, their courage serves as an inspiration to the friends and family members who stood by them through their greatest struggles.
