Transport America’s veterans to Washington, D.C. to visit those memorials dedicated to honor their service and sacrifices.
Helping every single veteran in America, willing and able of getting on a plane or a bus, visit THEIR memorial.
Top priority is given to America’s most senior heroes — survivors of World War II in the State of Texas and any veteran with a terminal illness who wishes to visit THEIR memorial. The program is accepting applications from Veterans who served in Country during the Korean War and Vietnam War and has received the Korean/Viet Nam Service medal and resides in the 14 surrounding counties of Austin.
WWII (Statewide) and Korea Veterans (14 surrounding counties) who served stateside and overseas. Currently the priority for Vietnam Veterans will be for those who served in Vietnam and residing in the 14 surrounding counties.
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 they actually get to visit and experience THEIR memorial.
“We can’t all be heroes. Some of us have to stand on the curb and clap as they go by.”

How to Help

It is estimated that 372 World War II veterans are dying each day. Therefore, our time to express our thanks to these brave men and women is running out.
