Over 60 years ago a remarkable generation of Americans joined forces to protect civilization in the largest war in world history. No amount of gratitude could ever repay the debt for the gift of democracy these veterans gave the world. However, HonorAir Knoxville is dedicated to honoring East Tennessee World War II and Korean War veterans and the sacrifices they made to ensure our freedoms.
HonorAir Knoxville is presented by Prestige Cleaners and sponsered by Covenant Health. HonorAir Knoxville's goal is to fly as many East Tennessee World War II and Korean War veterans as possible to Washington D.C. to see the memorials built in their honor. Currently, we are only accepting veterans from East Tennessee. There is a narrow window of opportunity to accomplish this task. According to the Department of Veterans Affair:
The trip costs approximately $500 per veteran so we need the financial support of the community to make these flights a reality. No donation dollars are applied to administrative expenses. They are paid by Prestige Cleaners so donors can be assured that every dollar they send is applied directly to the cost of the trip. Please help us honor "the greatest generation" who so willingly sacrificied for their country.
