Honor Flight Columbus still has seats available this year for World War II and Korean War veterans to fly to Washington, D.C. and enjoy a day of honor, celebration and sharing.

Honor Flight Columbus accepts applications from America’s Senior Veterans: Currently, these are the men and women who served during WWII and Korean War years. In addition, we put terminally ill veterans from any era at the head of the line. We are now accepting Vietnam War veterans for regular flights which began in Spring 2017​.

Accordingly, WWII veterans will continue to have top priority, with Korean veterans now comprising the majority of each flight. We call the Korean veterans on the waiting list for their flight in the order that we receive their applications.

It is our goal to transition veterans of wars by the sequence of the conflicts as long as donations from the public continue.

Get your application into us soon.
