VIDEO: 1,000 World War II Veterans Die Each Day

We have embedded this gorgeous and emotional video below, but we ask that you watch it HERE if possible to ensure that your view is counted towards the goal of 1,000,000 views which is less than 80,000 views from becoming a reality.

The Story of Stars and Stripes Honor Flight YouTube page reads:

Every day, 1,000 World War II veterans die.

Our mission, Operation Resolve, is simple: send every living World War II veteran to the stunning memorial created in their name in Washington, DC, before it’s too late.

To help make that happen and to tell the remarkable stories of these heroes, Stars and Stripes Honor Flight teamed up with Freethink Media to produce a feature length documentary film to be released in November 2011.

Shooting for over a year and a half, filmmaker Dan Hayes and his team have captured extremely profound scenes with the vets and their volunteers, intensely emotional interviews, and breathtaking shots of the Honor Flight trip to DC.

You’ll be inspired, both happy and sad, and left reflecting on what gratitude, freedom and the trip’s slogan, “Every day is a bonus,” really mean.

It’s typical for a vet who takes the trip to rank it among their top life experiences, just behind their wedding and the birth of their children.

For us to help provide that for them, is nothing short of remarkable.

Now, you can help.

Please send this trailer to your friends and family. The more people who watch it, the more money we raise, the more World War II veterans we can give this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
