Screening of “Honor Flight” Film to be Held in Lubbock
A film documenting the trip of four living World War II veterans and the community’s support in sending them to view monuments to their efforts will be screened in Lubbock next week.
“Honor Flight” will be shown on Tuesday, May 7th at the International Cultural Center at 601 Indiana Avenue. The screening will begin at 6:30 p.m., and is free to attend.
The film focuses on the efforts of community volunteers to raise funds for an “honor flight” and the results, as a group of World War II veterans go on an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington D.C. to see the monuments erected to honor their military achievements and efforts.
Tickets are free, but seating is limited in the International Cultural Center, so attendees should reserve tickets online at www.eventbrite.com by visiting the website and searching for “Honor Flight Lubbock.”
The South Plains Honor Flight will fly U.S. military veterans, particularly those from World War II and Korea, to Washington D.C. to see the monuments and other venues for the second year in a row.
Volunteers across the south plains are working to raise nearly $200,000 to send the group on the Honor Flight.
