(Osgood, Ind.) – World War II veterans and their families are invited to view a free film that will show them the magic and inspiration of an honor flight.

An honor flight is an all-expenses paid daytrip for war veterans to Washington, D.C., where they view the war memorials erected in their honor.

The movie “Honor Flight: One Last Mission” will be shown at the Damm Theatre in Osgood on Wednesday, August 27. The showing free for everyone is made possible by Neal’s Funeral Home director Lila Neal.

“The movie is a heartwarming documentary about four living WW II veterans sharing their experience about the war and also about a trip of a lifetime,” Neal says, adding the film sponsorship is a way to say “Thanks” to veterans for their sacrifices, commitment, and loyalty.

A trailer for the film can be viewed above.

“For the veterans, who are in their late 80′s and 90′s, it’s often the first time they’ve been thanked and the last trip of their lives,” Neal said.

Neal encourages veterans, particularly those from World War II to attend and learn more about the Honor Flight program. Representatives will also be on hand to get veterans signed up for a future Honor Flight.

The doors at the Damm Theatre will open at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday with the movie beginning at 6:30.
