A free showing of the film, “Honor Flight: One Last Mission” is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 11 at 5 p.m. at deCordova Country Club, in commemoration of Patriot Day.
Patriot Day is an annual observance on Sept. 11 to remember those who were injured or died during the terrorist attacks on the United States on Sept 11, 2001.
Honor Flight is a heartwarming, award-winning documentary about four World War II veterans and a Midwest community coming together to give them a trip of a lifetime.

All are invited to attend the showing to honor America, celebrate troops and veterans, and learn more about the deadliest conflict in human history that forever altered the social structure of America and the world.
Snacks will be available during the showing.
