Honor Flights – Tuesday PM 4/18/2023 – Come Join Us to Welcome the Return of Our Heroes!

Come one, come all!

The Cincinnati Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution have made it a regular event to welcome home Veterans who make the “Honor Flight” trip from Cincinnati to Washington DC..  We want to encourage any CCSAR members to participate and be there on Tuesday 4/18. 

When?  We are there to greet these returning heroes.  The expected return time is around 9:00PM.  Proceed to the Arrivals area and look for the Patriots who dress like its “1776”.

If you can come in uniform that would be terrific.  If not “Blue Coats” or come as you are are always welcome.

Please reach out if you have questions and want more information!

If you are not familiar with Honor Flights here is a brief overview of the program:

As a tribute to our veterans, there are “Honor Flights” from Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky International Airport to Washington DC.

The participating veterans and their family/friends/sponsors leave early in the morning on April 18th, flying non-stop from the Cincinnati area to Washington DC.

While in DC, these veterans visit multiple locations and memorials. 

Who is eligible?  Honor Flight takes veterans free of charge to visit their memorials in Washington, D.C..  Veterans eligible include: all World War II, Korean War and Vietnam War veterans aged 65 and older who served either stateside or overseas.

​The website for the program is:  https://www.honorflighttristate.org/about-us

Please note that these flights are funded by private donations, so if you are interested, there is more information on the above website.

For convenience, we provide some of the information from the Tri-State site below:

  • 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.  Click HERE for the application.

    The Honor Flight Tri-State Team wishes to thank our many sponsors (CLICK to view) without whom this program would not be made available to our treasured veterans. The mission of Honor Flight Tri-State has been embraced by corporate sponsors, grants and foundations, fundraisers and private donations. We are overwhelmed by their generosity.  With the outstanding support of the Greater Cincinnati community, Honor Flight Tri-State will be able to continue to take our veterans to their memorials. Corporate Sponsorship packets are available upon request. Call 513-277-9626 for further information.

    We Look Forward To Seeing You There!!
