Each year the Kansas Honor Flight sends more veterans to view their memorials in Washington D.C. than any of the over 130 hubs in the Honor Flight Network nation-wide. And we are pretty proud of that! Veterans of World War II, Korea, and Vietnam enjoy a 3-day, all-expense-paid trip to Washington D.C. to view their memorials, take place in ceremonies, and various other activities. We think it is a sad thing that so many veterans of these wars never get to see the memorials that were built in their honor, so we have made sure to send them ourselves!
The flights and trips cost nothing for the veterans. All they have to do is sign-up. Our waiting list is long, however! If you are a veteran wanting to go on a flight, or know a veteran who is, sign them up right away as we currently have over 600 veterans on a waiting list. World War II and Korea veterans get priority, as well as terminally ill veterans of any war as we have to send them while they are still with us.
