Honor Flight Network Programs
Honor Flight Network offers three different programs that provide veterans with special needs due to terminal illnesses or those who do not live near one of our regional hubs the opportunity to visit their memorials in Washington D.C. With approximately 131 chapters serving veterans in 45 states and the District of Columbia Honor Flight is growing to help our veterans across the country. However, we recognize not everyone can join a group trip and encourage you to investigate if you qualify for an Honor Flight Network Program.
Please see each program Honor Flight National offers by reading the descriptions below. All programs have specific qualifications and an application process. Please select each program title to be taken directly to
Honor Flight Network's Website and Applications.
As always, Honor Flight Network’s mission is to fly World War II, Korean and Vietnam War veterans to Washington D.C. to visit their Memorials. Should a veteran qualify for a program, every effort will be made to see that their trip becomes a reality.
Should you need any help or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Designed for WWII, Korean or Vietnam War veterans and accompanying family or friends (“guardians”) willing to fund and secure their OWN transportation to the Baltimore Washington International (BWI) Airport or the BWI Hilton.
2. Southwest Lone Eagle Program
A Lone Eagle is a Veteran whose application has been in our national office for one year or more, yet they do not live close to one of our existing hub cities. Our definition of “close” is within a 120 mile radius of the airport used by the closest hub. Please visit the link below for a full description, qualifications and the application process.
3. Southwest TLC (Their Last Chance) Program
Another category of veterans we are equally concerned about are ALL those who served in uniform that were recently diagnosed with a terminal illness. It is our mission to transport these veterans if they have never been able to visit the various national memorials constructed to honor the service and sacrifice of their brothers and sisters in arms. All such veterans, regardless of the conflict they participated in (Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm, Iraqi Freedom, etc.) who wish to visit our nation’s existing memorials, will be invited to do so. Specifically, this program includes ALL veterans, even younger veterans who participated in recent conflicts for which a national memorial does not exist. At the Honor Flight Network, we feel they all should have an opportunity to clearly see and appreciate how our nation honors those who were willing to lay down their very lives in service to our country.
