Americans felt it was important to build memorials to honor the service and sacrifice of its veterans. Badger Honor Flight, a non-profit, all volunteer organization, has made it their mission to send every Veteran to Washington D.C. to see the memorials built in their honor at no charge to the Veteran. The current focus of Badger Honor Flight is Veterans from WWII and Korea and terminally ill Veterans from any conflict. The organization serves Columbia, Dane, Dodge, Grant, Green, Iowa, Jefferson, Lafayette, Richland, Rock, and Sauk counties, flying out of the Dane County Regional Airport. Since their first flight in 2010, they have flown a total of 7 flights flying 662 Veterans on this trip of a lifetime. It costs $92,000 per flight, and two are scheduled for this coming fall. Any support is welcome. Visit Badger Honor Flight at, or follow the organization on Facebook.
