Honor Flight, The Movie
Honor Flight is a heartwarming 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 WWII Veterans to Washington, DC to see the memorial constructed for them in 2004, nearly 60 years after their epic struggle.

WHV Partners can host a screening of the movie in your community to raise awareness and support for your program, Honor Flight and We Honor Veterans. For more information about hosting a screening click here!

End of Life Nursing Education Consortium (ELNEC) for Veterans
ELNEC-For Veterans Curriculum now available! This curriculum was developed to meet the unique palliative care needs of Veterans and to guide nurses in orchestrating this care. Only 4% of Veterans die in VA facilities. Those working in non-VA facilities care for the other 96% of Veterans. Nurses and other healthcare providers working in non-VA facilities must be trained in caring for the unique needs of Veterans. Please pay special attention to the 'Copyright Permission' and 'Use of ELNEC Materials' links found in the Table of Contents.

The ultimate goal is to relieve suffering and improve the quality of life for all Veterans who are living with, or dying of, life-threatening illnesses.
