16.06.2014 Breitling's Special Honor Flight Trip for D-Day Survivors
 

Breitling, the Swiss watch manufacturer, continued their support of the non-profit organization Honor Flight, by contributing funds to make a flight possible for veterans of D-Day, in honor of the 70th Anniversary of the historic day.

This flight made it possible for 65 Southeast Florida veterans who stormed Normandy Beach on June 6, 1944 to visit the memorial dedicated to their service 70 years later. This special anniversary Honor Flight joined over 300 other D-Day survivors at the National D-Day Memorial in Bedford, Virginia on June 6, 2014, followed by a visit to the WWII Memorial, among others, in Washington, DC on June 7, 2014.

"To be able to celebrate and recognize D-Day Survivors on the 70th Anniversary of such a monumental day in history is truly a unique way to thank them for their service," said Thierry Prissert, Breitling U.S.A. President. "Time is running out for many of these veterans, so we're honored to have the chance to work with Honor Flight Network to give them 'one last mission' and honor them as they so rightly deserve."

The 70th Anniversary of D-Day, which initiated the Western Allied invasion of Nazi-occupied Europe during World War II, was observed in a special ceremony at the National D-Day Memorial in Bedford, Virginia wherein the Bedford Boys "Homage" sculpture by the late artist, Jim Brothers, was dedicated. Additional program highlights included an honor guard, recognition of D-Day veterans, guest speakers, and dignitaries from France, Canada, United Kingdom and Belgium.

The Honor Flight Network, whose mission is to send veterans to visit the memorial dedicated to their service in Washington, DC, free of charge, has sent more than 118,000 veterans to Washington, DC to date. To date, Breitling has supported the Honor Flight Network with donations totaling over $200,000 to support Honor Flight's mission.
