If you know a relative, friend, or neighbor who is a World War II veteran, you can help give him or her a unique and much-deserved honor – a free trip to our nation’s capital to visit the World War II Memorial courtesy of Honor Flight Rochester.

Since its first flight in 2008, Honor Flight Rochester has taken over 1,200 area veterans to visit their World War II Memorial as well as other memorials in our nation’s capital.  Throughout his tenure, Joe Robach has been a tremendous supporter of honor flight and encourages all veterans to seize the opportunity to use it!  Honor Flight and Joe Robach want to honor all interested WWII veterans, and they need your help.  If you know a relative, friend, or neighbor who should be honored with a trip, please fill out an application today.  The two-day trip is free to all veterans but World War II veterans take precedence.  It is a race against the clock to recognize them.  Private donations and fundraising events allow Honor Flight Rochester, which is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, to fund these much-deserved trips for our veterans.

Applications are available online and at all Town Hall locations throughout Monroe County.  For more information contact the office of Joe Robach or Honor Flight directly at or 585-210-2115.
