“We fly our heroes to Washington, DC to visit and reflect together at their memorials.”
Honor Flight is free to all WWII and Korean veterans and to veterans from any era who suffer a terminal illness. Our goal is to take every veteran who otherwise would not or could not go, and who wants to fly.
Veterans typically fly in the order their applications are received. Medical priorities are the exception. WWII veterans will fly before Korean War veterans because of the health issues many of our aging WWII veterans face. Some Korean War veterans may be assigned to missions in the fall of 2013 but Korean veterans who apply probably will not be eligible to go on a mission until 2014.
The flying season is April to November. With hundreds of local veterans currently in line, Applications are now being accepted the Fall of 2013. The sooner Veterans apply, the sooner they fly.
