Like many soldiers, John dreams of creating a deeper connection with the soldiers he never had the chance to meet. As time is of the essence and his abilities are hindered, John’s only aspiration to visit the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C seemed unobtainable–until Santa Barbara Dream Foundation’s Dream for Veterans Program and the help of Southwest Airlines and Honor Flight Network made his dreams come true. “Just that one little touch meant so much to me,” John said after visiting the memorial.

Committing to fulfilling the final dreams of terminally-ill veterans, Dream Foundation, a local nonprofit, has partnered with the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) to ensure that veterans, such as John, and their families are given inspiration, comfort, and closure at the end of their lives.
