Honoring our Senior Veterans

September 29

Mission #91 - Cosponsored by Vance Outdoors

John Glenn Columbus International

Honor Flight Columbus accepts applications from America’s Senior Veterans: Currently, these are the men and women who served during WWII, Korean, and Vietnam War years. In addition, we put terminally ill veterans from any era at the head of the line. 

Accordingly, WWII veterans will continue to have top priority, with Korean and Vietnam veterans now comprising the majority of each flight. We call the Korean and Vietnam 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.

The Mission of Honor Flight Columbus is to:

  • Honor our nation’s senior veterans with a trip to Washington, D.C. to visit their war memorials at no cost to them
  • Share their stories for the benefit of future generations
  • Celebrate their homecoming, affirming their allegiance and service to our country

Honor Flight Columbus is not affiliated with or, which charge veterans a fee for to participate. Honor Flight Columbus never charges a vet!
