How do you get 38,000-plus World War II veterans to Washington, D.C. to see the country's memorial to their service? Fly them, of course. That's roughly how many vets and caretakers are on the Honor Flight Network's waiting list. But United Airlines, American Airlines, and most others aren't just giving away free seats for veterans. That's where Honor Flight comes in, but it can't do it alone. Like any other non-profit, it needs to raise money.
Good thing Honor Flight has the NFL's most dominant defender at their side. The Houston Texans' JJ Watt is putting his legendary fundraising skills to work for the 348 World War II veterans who die every day.
