Thank you for your interest in Honor Flight! We would LOVE to have you come out and join us.

The Honor Flight Network flies veterans from all over the country to visit THEIR memorials in Washington DC free of charge.

Our greatest need is greeters at the airport. Many of us assume that our veterans had a warm welcome when they arrived home and in most cases, that was just not true. Many veterans have told us that they didn’t receive ANY welcome home, and thought they were forgotten.

Our basic role is to meet, greet, and welcome with as much pomp and circumstance as we can muster. We decorate, play patriotic music, and thank them for their service. The more smiling faces in the crowd to let them know – WE HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN YOUR SACRIFICE – the better!

Honor Flight’s Mission

GOAL:  Helping every single veteran in America, willing and able to board a plane or a bus, to visit THEIR memorials.

PRIORITY:  Top priority is given to America’s most senior heroes — World War II era veterans, and any veteran with a terminal illness who wishes to visit THEIR memorial.  The program will naturally transition to Korean War, Vietnam War and all other veterans who served, on a chronological basis.

ELIGIBILITY:  All men and women serving stateside or overseas.

PHILOSOPHY:  Since America felt it was important to build a memorial to the service and the ultimate sacrifice of her veterans, the Honor Flight Network believes it’s equally important that these Veterans actually get to visit and experience THEIR memorial.

MOTTO:  “We can’t all be heroes. Some of us have to stand on the curb and clap as they go by.” – Will Rogers
