Honor Flight movie to be showin in Seymour

SEYMOUR — “Honor Flight The Movie” will be shown at 6 p.m. April 18 at the Seymour High School auditorium.

The movie is a documentary about four World War II veterans and a Midwest community coming together to give them the trip of a lifetime.

Volunteers race against the clock to fly thousands of World War II veterans to Washington, D.C., to see the memorial constructed for them in 2005, nearly 60 years after the war.

The trips are called Honor Flights, and for the veterans, who are in their late 80s and early 90s, it’s sometimes the first time they’ve been thanked for their service.

After the film there will be a question-and-answer session with an Indy Honor Flight board member where people can learn about upcoming flights.

The showing is open to the public with a special invitation for veterans and their families. There is no admission fee, and reservations are not required.
