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.
