The "Cause"

For our USD 252 Honor Flight trips, students are paired with veterans as they visit a host of memorials and landmarks in and around our nation's capital. Stops included the White House; Capitol; Roosevelt, Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials; World War II, Korea and Vietnam Memorials; Holocaust Museum; and Arlington National Cemetery.
