Our Mission

The Mission of Honor Flight Columbus is to:

  • Honor our nation’s senior veterans with a trip to Washington, D.C. to visit their war memorials at no cost to them
  • Share their stories for the benefit of future generations
  • Celebrate their homecoming, affirming their allegiance and service to our country

The calendar brings us the 4th of July.  Our military veterans bring us Independence Day

To show Central Ohio’s appreciation to our senior veterans for their selfless defense of liberty, Honor Flight Columbus provides them a day in the nation’s Capital to visit the memorials built in their honor.

Thanks to the many people of Central Ohio who support our mission of Honor, Share and Celebrate, Honor Flight Columbus is vibrant and active.  We have several hundred wonderful, active volunteers who provide support in myriad ways.   We also have generous donors who provide the funds needed to charter aircraft and motor coaches, feed the veterans on the trip and see to all their needs. We are a non-profit, charitable organization and donations can be made on this website.
