Here’s How You Can Help & Honor North Dakota Veterans
The Western ND Honor Flight organization is planning another trip to Washington D.C.; they hope to take local veterans to different memorials built in their honor. This is something those behind the honor flight feel is very important to do for veterans at no cost.
Help Raising Funds
The next Western ND Honor Flight is set to take place some time in October, provided they raise the funds to do it.
According to a press release from Marty Presler, each flight costs $175,000 and there are currently 190 veterans on the waiting list.
The organization explained there is a bit of urgency to this. Many of the veterans they plan to take on the trip are aging, and they don't want to keep them waiting too long. The organization wants to make sure they can do this for as many veterans as possible.
The non-profit organization relies on donations and volunteers to make this happen and they still have yet to raise the funds to make this happen. So, if you're looking for a worthy cause to pay it forward to, consider supporting our veterans and sending them on a very special trip.
