Highlights of the Honor Flight Mission is provided below:

  • Their Mission is Simple – they offer Honor Flights to veterans so they may visit their respective War memorials in Washington, D.C.
  • All World War II, Korean War and Vietnam War veterans aged 65 and older, who served either stateside or overseas, are eligible.
  • We will leave NO ONE behind! 
  • 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, we will assign a qualified and enthusiastic guardian, 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.
  • Click HERE for the application.

All flights include:

  • Airfare, bus tour, an Honor Flight Tri-State signature T-shirt (which must be worn on the trip), name badge souvenir, three meals, and assigned guardian on a one day trip.
  • Veterans and guardians must arrive at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) Terminal at the assigned time. We take care of everything from there.
  • All veterans must have their own transportation to and from the airport.
  • Guardians will be asked to attend a guardian meeting one week before their flight and must be willing to pay the guardian fee.
  • If interested, please click HERE for the application.
