For many of our veterans, a trip to Washington to see their memorials is not financially or physically possible by themselves. This is the mission of Honor Flight Tri-State: to make that dream come true for as many veterans as possible. If a veteran does not have a family member to accompany them, a qualified and enthusiastic guardian will be assigned, ready to assist them on their trip of a lifetime. The HONOR FLIGHT trip is at no cost to the veterans and all veterans over the age of 65, whether they served stateside or overseas, are eligible to apply. https://www.honorflighttristate.org/about-us
