In what has become an annual tradition, the George Washington volleyball team took advantage of Saturday's off day and spent time at the World War II memorial with the Space Coast Honor Flight Veterans.
It marks the second year in a row that the Colonials have volunteered their time with service veterans as they visit the memorials erected in their honor.
Honor Flight Network (HFN) is an organization determined to help every American war veteran visit the memorials that were created in their honor. The group works with donors and airlines to arrange visits to Washington, D.C., at no cost to the veterans. According to HFN's website, 81,000 veterans of WWII, Korea and Vietnam have visited their war memorials since HFN's inception.
"This is the second year in a row we have participated in this amazing tribute to our veterans," said head coach Amanda Ault. "It is such a moving experience to see our girls connect with these veterans and see the look in their eyes as they are honored. We are so happy to volunteer our time to honor these heroes."
