ANTIGO - A Northwoods community wants to honor our veterans who gave to America.

Antigo is bringing a piece of the hugely successful Honor Flight program to the city.

Three sponsors are teaming up to show "Honor Flight - The Movie" to veterans for free at the Palace Theater this month.

"The guys that were in World War II didn't really have an opportunity for us to show our respect and our gratitude for what they have done. Since we're losing so many of our vets, this is a great opportunity for us to show what we feel for what they've done for us," say Barb and Tim Suick, the owners of the Palace Theater in Antigo.

They hope entire families come to see the film.

"The movie itself shows their story. One of them was in a concentration camp, one of them was dying of cancer, and just made the flight in time."

"Honor Flight - The Movie" will be shown at 2 p.m. the next two Sundays.

Veterans and active military members are free.

Public tickets cost five dollars.

Call (715) 623-4570 for more infomation or tickets.
