Veterans


​​    The one-day, all-expense-paid trip takes us from Melbourne to Orlando by bus, a flight to Baltimore International Airport, and a bus ride to visit the memorials.   There we visit the USAF, WWII, Korean, Vietnam, Iwo Jima, and Women's Memorials as well as the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery.  


On each trip we transport 25 Veterans, 25 Guardian Escorts, and 25 wheel chairs.  Meals are provided for the entire day.


Each trip consists of a: 

1. Mandatory Pre-Trip Orientation two weeks prior to the flight

2. Trip to Washington D.C.

3. Celebratory Reunion 4-6 weeks after the trip


    Veterans must attend the pre-trip orientation two weeks prior to their departure.  During Orientation, they will: be introduced to fellow Veterans, have a picture taken, interface with their Guardian, be familiarized with the trip plan, and briefly review their medical records with a doctor.


Veterans will be called based on when your application was received as well as the following priorities:
