A program that provides flights at no cost to World War II veterans to Washington, D.C., to see the World War II memorial and other war memorials is coming to an end.

Oklahoma Honor Flights executive director Gary Banz told an Oklahoma City newspaper that applications will not be accepted after November 1st. 

Only two more flights are scheduled, one in September and another in October, both from Oklahoma City and that there will then be no more veterans on the waiting list.

The flights began six years ago and 20 flights have been made, taking more than 1,800 World War II veterans on the all-expenses paid trip.
