Honor Flight Bluegrass Chapter, is a Louisville, Kentucky based 501(c)(3) all-volunteer non-profit organization serving Kentucky and Southern Indiana created to honor America's Honored Veterans for their service and their sacrifices.
We fly our heroes to Washington, DC to visit and reflect at their memorials for their service, sacrifices and memories.
Top priority is given to those Veterans from any war or conflict that have been diagnosed with a terminal illness, those with too few tomorrows and the senior Veterans - WW II Survivors.
Subsequent priorities are given to Korean and then Vietnam War Veterans.
