Over 10,000 Veterans Each Year!
PLEASE JOIN US!
We are so excited that you are interesting in volunteering with Honor Flight. The Honor Flight Network flies Veterans from 140 hubs here to Washington, DC to visit their Memorials at no cost to the Veterans. The easiest way to volunteer here is to greet our Veterans as their flight arrives at the airport or their buses arrive at the WWII Memorial.
Our group is 100% made up of volunteers who donate their time to greet our nation’s Greatest Generation as they arrive to DC on their Honor Flights. These World War II, Korean War, and Vietnam War Veterans generally arrive in the spring and the fall, allowing the Veterans to escape the more severe temperatures of summer and winter. 11,521 Veterans greeted by DCA Honor Flight Volunteers in 2016 alone!
There are several ways to volunteer with Honor Flight DCA Volunteers, including greeting the veterans or serving as a guardian (volunteers who accompany individual Veterans throughout the trip). For more information about these opportunities, please check out our Volunteering section. Thank you for your participation and for bringing others–your family, coworkers, and friends to welcome and honor these Veterans! This could not be done without you –and the Veterans often report that these greetings are their favorite parts of the whole trip!

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
