OKLAHOMA HONOR FLIGHTS

Oklahoma Honor Flights recognizes American veterans for their sacrifices and achievements by arranging for them to visit Washington at no cost to see the National World War II memorial.

Priority: Top priority — for which applications only are being accepted — is given to World War II and terminally ill veterans from all wars. In time, the flights will be expanded to include Korean and Vietnam veterans.

Guardians: Guardians fly with the veterans on every flight to provide assistance and to ensure veterans have a safe, memorable, and rewarding experience.

Flight goal: The group's goal is to have three flights in 2012 as it did in 2011. The group intends to take at least 100 veterans on each trip.

Contact: For more information about applications or donations, call 259-9000 or go to www.oklahomahonorflights.org.
