Iowa's greatest-generation war heroes need your help: 1,000 U.S. World War II veterans die each day. This why Central & Western Iowa Honor Flight created a fund designed to help get these incomparable men and women to the National War Memorial in Washington, D.C. and Arlington National Cemetery. And only your purchase of the DVD "None Less Than Heroes --- The Honor Flight Story" (a documentary film that premiered in Des Moines and Council Bluffs on Veteran's Day to universal critical acclaim, and is available just in time for Christmas) can make this happen.
Iowans produced and "star" in this documentary, which Council Bluffs Nonpareil publisher Tom Schmitt calls "43 minutes every American should experience." The film is narrated by actor/director/patriot Gary Sinise and features interviews with Iowa veterans who for the first time publicly share their war experiences and how it changed their lives as Iowans, with the blessings of victory and the fellowship they shared with their fellows.
A Veterans Day op ed in the Des Moines Register by Iowa native John Rizzuti entitled "Americans owe it to veterans to back Honor Flight efforts"
says, "The only way this can happen is if all Iowans, all Americans, make their personal mission the support of this organization before these modest heroes are no more. They gave their all to preserve our way of life. For us to do less than give our all for them would be unthinkable."
You can now purchase the DVD version of this documentary for only $9.95, only at HyVee's and Casey's General Stores or www.HonorFlightFilm.org
All proceeds will fund future Honor Flights not only for Iowans but also for WWII veterans across the U.S. So if you can, please help us help these quiet heroes. Because for some, next Christmas will be too late.
