AmericanWarrior is committed to positively changing the lives of our World War
II Veterans with a trip to Washington DC, to visit their
long-awaited WWII Memorial.
Our Day of Honor trips are funded by donations. AmericanWarrior gladly
accepts donations from anyone except WWII Veterans. We believe that these Veterans have given enough. In addition to WWII Veterans, the program focuses on any Korean or Vietnam Veteran, who don’t have the means to visit their memorials. Terminally ill veterans have priority.
On September 30th we completed our sixth "AmericanWarrior Day of Honor". To date we
have sent over 630 World War II, Korean and Vietnam Veterans
on US Air chartered aircraft to Reagan International
Airport. During this journey we enjoyed lunch at the WWII
Memorial, and then visited the Korean, Vietnam, Air Force,
Sea Bee, Navy and Marine Memorials. Amazingly the final cost
for this wonderful journey is less then $250 per WWII
Veteran. These trips are absolutely free for our Veterans.
During these trips, veterans are escorted and
cared for by “Guardians.” Guardians are next-generation
family members and/or volunteers who accompany the veterans on
their trip. Flights, meals, tee shirts and deluxe motor coach
services are provided at no cost to the WWII Veterans. The
flight returns later that same evening. This “Day of Tribute”
costs less then $250 per World War II Veteran and we will send
as many veterans as possible. Future trips require additional sponsors.
