Rose State Honors Heroes on Flag Day, June 14 Special Showing of “Journey to Honor” Published May 26, 2017

Rose State College is excited to announce a special Flag Day event on Wednesday, June 14, at the Rose State College Hudiburg Chevrolet Center. Doors will open at 3 pm and 7 pm for two, free community events to honor our heroes. This tribute to the men and women who serve our nation will include a time of celebration for our veterans, and will end with a special showing of the documentary “Journey to Honor.”

This film tells the heroic life story of three WWII veterans from Oklahoma, and follows their emotional journey with the Oklahoma Honor Flight to Washington, DC. More than 2,000 WWII veterans made the trip with Honor Flights over several years to see their memorial, and the film captures that experience, as well as the impact it’s had on the veterans and their families.

This film is an inspirational tribute to the men and women who have served our country, and we’re excited to highlight and honor that sacrifice.

“Journey to Honor,” a salute to America’s World War II heroes, brings to life the Will Rogers quote, “We can’t all be heroes because somebody has to stand on the curb and clap as they go by." This short film captures the heart of a movement that focused a spotlight on members of the Greatest Generation and honored them for their service and sacrifice.

“Journey to Honor” will be screened at the 2017 deadCenter Film Festival June 8-11, 2017.
