How Freedom Honor Flight Helps Veterans

17 Dec

A former United States Marine, Shane Stodghill maintains ties to his military service by contributing to a number of nonprofit organizations dedicated to veterans, including Freedom Honor Flight.

Based in La Crosse, Wisconsin, Freedom Honor Flight was founded in 2008 with the sole purpose of flying veterans out to Washington, DC, to see the war memorials erected in their honor. Priority is given to veterans of World War II and veterans with terminal illness, though all former service members are encouraged to apply. The trip lasts a whole day and veterans spend time at the World War II Memorial, the Korean War Memorial, the Vietnam Wall, the Marine Corps War Memorial, and more depending on time. Veterans are accompanied by trained volunteers who spend the whole day with them.

Freedom Honor Flight is a volunteer organization operated through the aid of supporters like Shane Stodghill. To learn more about this organization, please visit
