Flight New England. Honor Flight New England is a non-profit organization that
transports World War II Veterans to the World War II Memorial in Washington DC
at no cost to the veteran. Joe is a Vietnam era veteran, retired law enforcement

sacrifices. Through generous donations we transport veterans from the New

World War II survivors, and veterans of other wars that are terminally ill.
