Flightless Honor Fight planned in November for veterans who can’t travel by air; application required

Honor Flight Tri-State has added a new program called the Flightless Honor Flight. 

Since Honor Flight Tri-State began to fly veterans over ten years ago, we have focused on World War II veterans.  Their memorial was built in their honor in Washington DC over 60 years after the war ended. With the passing of time, many now are too ill to travel or have been advised by their doctor not to travel or to be away from home for 18 hours. 

We now realize that many veterans of other wars and conflicts are also in the same position. The Flightless Honor Flight is designed to give these veterans a proper “thank you” for their service too.  All veterans age 65 and over who have served either stateside or overseas are eligible to participate in this Flightless Honor Flight program if they are not able to participate in the regular

Honor Flight Tri-State trip to Washington DC.We offer Honor Flights to veterans so they may visit their memorials in Washington, D.C..

All World War II, Korean War and Vietnam War veterans aged 65 and older who served either stateside or overseas, are eligible.

Veterans interested in the Flightless Honor Flight are required to fill out a special application and return it to headquarters in order to participate.  Honor Flight Tri-State will honor the first 50 veterans that apply.

For more information and to access the application, please call Dee Daniels on the hotline at 513-277-9626
