Film documents World War II veterans’ travel

The movie “Honor Flight” will be shown at 6 p.m. April 18 in the auditorium at Seymour High School, 1350 W. Second St.

Doors open at 5:15 p.m. This event is open to the public with a special invitation to veterans and their families. No reservations are required and there is no admission fee.

“Honor Flight” is a 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.

After the film, there will be a question-and-answer session with a board member of the Indy Honor Flight hub where everyone can learn about upcoming flights and how to get involved.
