DUE TO CAUTIONARY MEASURES associated with COVID-19, the Honor Flight 2021 season will look much different than in years past. Information is provided for individuals to participate independently of any official Honor Flight coordinated efforts; DCA Honor Flight volunteers will not be coordinating activities for the 2021 fall season. Please read our update here before proceeding. You must read and adhere these protocols if you intend on volunteering with Honor Flight or coming into contact with any Honor Flight group.
The Honor Flight Network flies Veterans from 140 hubs here to Washington, DC to visit their Memorials at no cost to the Veterans.
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.
- Total Veterans to DC since 2005: 243,714!!!!!!!
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
