The Kansas Honor Flight Mission
The mission of the Kansas Honor Flight is to honor all of our veterans of WWII, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War by providing them with a three-day trip to Washington, D.C., to visit the memorials built in their honor and to take part in some of the ceremonies at those memorials. The trip is provided at no cost to qualified veterans. Please visit our FAQs page or our Contact page to get answers to your questions.
KHF is in Need of Volunteers and Guardians to Help Us Succeed in Our Mission. See Our Kansas Honor Flight Applications Below!
Who Can Apply to Go on a Kansas Honor Flight?
Any Kansas veteran of our armed forces who served during WWII, Korea, or Vietnam – regardless of whether they served overseas, on a combat tour, or state-side – qualifies to go on a Kansas Honor Flight. Even if the veteran did not enter military service in the state of Kansas, if they are CURRENTLY a Kansas resident (and have been for some time) they can still qualify to go. However, ALL veterans must have served during the time periods indicated below:
- December 7th, 1941 – December 31st, 1946 (World War II)
- June 25th, 1950 – January 31st, 1955 (Korean War)
- February 28th, 1961 – May 7th, 1975 (Vietnam War)
How to Apply for a Flight
Veterans requiring physical assistance must have a guardian accompany them for their trip. A guardian can be any friend or family member, with the exception of spouses. It is national Honor Flight policy that spouses are ineligible to accompany veterans as guardians, unless the spouse is also a qualified veteran (fitting the same qualifications for time and service period as the veteran going on the flight).
Guardians play a significant role on every Kansas Honor Flight, ensuring that every veteran has a safe and memorable experience. Duties include, but are not limited to, physically assisting the veterans at the airport, during the flight and at the memorials.
