The ability to fly comes from the donations made by grateful Americans who appreciate our World War II, Korean War, and Vietnam Veterans. 

A Veteran -- whether active duty, retired, national guard or reserve -- is someone who, at one point in his/her life, wrote a blank check made payable to The "United States of America", for an amount of "up to and including my life."

The trip costs the Veterans nothing; they have already paid with their outstanding service to our nation.

It takes about $65,500 for each flight in 2018.

Trips are funded by donations from grateful Americans like you who understand that we are running out of time to honor these heroes!  The effort and work to get Central Ohio Veterans to their memorials is done mostly by volunteers. A hard working cadre of dedicated Volunteers are supported by three part-time employees. All this hard work is done out of admiration for these men and women.
