It is truly Honor Flight of Oregon's privilege to fly our heroes to Washington, D.C. to visit and reflect at the memorials built in their honor. Our WWII Veterans, Korean Veterans and any Veteran who is terminally ill will always have priority.
Vietnam Veterans may now submit application to be invited on a trip as space and funding permit.
The application will be dated and time stamped when received and Veterans fly on a "first application received - first to fly".
And remember, every veteran flies free.
From the moment the veterans are in our hands until we return them to their loved ones, guardians will be asked to treat these heroes as if they are family and ensure that every veteran has a safe, memorable, and rewarding experience.
Because they play such a significant role in our program, we will provide training sessions for all guardians prior to participating in one of our trips.
All guardians pay their own way. We will book Guardian tickets as a "group" to get the lowest possible air fare. Guardian donations may vary flight to flight based on air fares, but are not due until the guardian is scheduled for a flight.
If a person wishes to be on a flight with a specific Veteran, please list the Veteran's name on the top right of the Guardian application.
Minimum age for a guardian is normally 18, but we will consider all guardians on a case by case bases.
We are sorry, but we do not normally accept spouses as guardians please see our FAQ page.
Honor Flight of Oregon is a volunteer program created to honor our veterans for all they have sacrificed to make this a better world.
Without the support of these volunteers there is no way we would be able to provide the opportunity to fly our heroes to Washington D.C. to see the memorials that were created in their honor.
Examples of volunteer positions include being at the airport for a send off and then being there at the Airport for the veterans at the end of the trip to welcome them home with a cheering reception; help find transportation to Portland for the veterans: organizing fund raisers within a community to support the mission of Honor Flight.
If you would like to volunteer your services, please contact us. You can be a part of making our veterans' dreams a reality.
You CAN make a difference.
