'Honor Flight' to be shown March 10 at Lakeland Cinema
Film will show at 2 p.m.

There will be a showing of “Honor Flight: One Last Mission” at the Lakeland Cinema in Woodruff Sunday, March 10, 2 p.m.

Honor Flight is a heartwarming documentary about four living 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 their epic struggle. The trips are called “Honor Flights” and for the veterans, who are in their late 80s and early 90s, it’s often the first time they’ve been thanked and the last trip of their lives. 

Many Lakeland area veterans have participated in this event.

The 24-hour journey is filled with surprises that deeply move all who are involved. It’s uncommon for World War II veterans to talk about the war, but the Honor Flight experience brings their stories out. Many veterans say, with the exception of their wedding day and the birth of their children, the trip is the best day of their life.

Tickets are $10 for general admission and $7 for seniors, and are available at www.tugg.com/events/2969. F

For more information, call the theatre at 715-356-3404.
