Honor Flight of Oregon Flight is a proud member of the Honor Flight Network. Created solely to honor America's oldest veterans for all their sacrifices we transport our heroes living in Oregon to Washington, D.C. to visit and reflect at their memorials. World War II survivors, along with those other veterans who may be terminally ill may apply
Of all of the wars in recent memory, it was World War II that truly threatened our very existence as a nation—and as a culturally diverse, free society. Now, with over one thousand World War II veterans dying each day, our time to express our thanks to these brave men and women is running out.
Mission Statement: Transport Oregon WWII veterans to Washington, D.C. to visit those memorials dedicated to honor their service and sacrifices.
Goal: Helping Oregon WWII Veterans, willing and able of getting on a plane or a bus, visit THEIR memorial.
Priority: Survivors of World War II and any veteran with a terminal illness who wishes to visit THEIR memorial.
ELIGIBILITY: All men and women serving stateside or overseas between the dates of Dec 7, 1942 (or earlier) and Dec. 31, 1945 who have not seen their memorials.
Philosophy: Since America felt it was important to build a memorial to the service and the ultimate sacrifice of her veterans, the Honor Flight Network and Honor Flight of Oregon believes it's equally important that they actually get to visit and experience THEIR memorial.
