CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Honor Flight Network is a non-profit organization that was created to honor America’s veterans, for all their sacrifices. 

These heroes are transported to Washington, D.C. to visit and reflect at their memorials.  Top priority is given to World War Two survivors, along with those who may be terminally ill.

At the present there 16,000 World War Two veterans on the national waiting list and thousands more will apply this year.

This morning on Larry’s Look, seven veterans joined Larry to talk about their Honor Flight trip.  They all live at Park Pointe Village, an Acts Retirement Community, in Rock Hill. 

Each one also talked about their war experiences serving our country in combat. They shared stories and memorabilia from their time in the military.
