Celebrating 10 Years Flying WWII Veterans on Honor Flight
Every Soldier, Sailor, Airman, Marine, and Coast Guardsman signed a check made payable to the United States of America for an amount “up to and including their life”. That commitment makes it imperative that we commit to honoring these heroes.
WE ARE HONOR FLIGHT BLUEGRASS. Our mission is simple.
We take World War II, Korean War, and Vietnam War veterans to Washington, DC to see “their” memorials and return them to a hero’s welcome home.
The Honor Flight Network is comprised of over 130 “hubs” across the United States and has flown well over 200,000 veterans since 2004. Our Louisville hub – Honor Flight Bluegrass – has flown over 2,000 veterans.
WE, HONOR FLIGHT BLUEGRASS, are celebrating our 10-year anniversary! Our first flight of 2018 is to fly 60 WWII veterans to see their memorial on a special two-day trip. We will depart Louisville (SDF) on June 5th and return home on the evening of June 6th, D-Day. Mark your calendars now.
To insure the utmost safety, we include a medical team, staff, and an individual guardian for each veteran. After seeing their memorials, we throw a festive and memorable homecoming that most them never had. We know we have accomplished our mission when we hear the words, “this is the best day of my life”.
TIME IS CRITICAL! WE NEED YOUR HELP!
First, we need your help to find WWII Veterans! We only have about 4,000 WWII veterans left in Kentucky. Of the 16 million who served in WWII, only about 500,000 remain and we are losing them by the hundreds each day.
TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE!
RECRUIT A WWII VET!
Honor Flight Bluegrass is solely operated by 21 board members, volunteers and community funding. You too can help us find veterans, donate to the mission, or volunteer our talents. If you want to apply to take an Honor Flight as a veteran, serve as a guardian, be a volunteer, or to simply make a donation; then, you are just a click away. Thank you again.
