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.
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.
While we recognize and respect the men and women who served during the Viet Nam and more recent wars, Honor Flight Columbus’ efforts are to provide a day of Honor, Celebration and Sharing for Senior Veterans. It is our goal to transition veterans of wars by the sequence of the conflicts as long as donations from the public continue.
Honor Flight Columbus has no paid staff. Everyone is a volunteer.
Take the Free One-Day tour.Veterans are provided this tour-of-honor experience as a token of our gratitude and respect for their service to our country.
'It's the Veteran, not the reporter, who has given us the freedom of the press.'
'It's the Veteran, not the poet, who has given us the freedom of speech.'
'It's the Veteran, not the community organizer, who gives us the freedom to demonstrate.'
'It's the Military who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the flag.'
