Your Support Keeps These Trips Completely Free for the Veterans.
Honor Flight Dayton, Inc. is a Federal nonprofit 501(c) 3 organization. Donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
Your donation will help transport Veterans to Washington, D.C. to visit THEIR memorials. Our top priority is our nation’s most senior heroes. World War II Veterans waited patiently for over 65 years for a memorial that recognizes their service and accomplishments. The World War II Memorial also recognizes the ultimate sacrifices of their friends who never made it home. Similarly, Korean War and Vietnam War Veterans have been waiting for years to see their respective memorial as well. They ALL deserve this one last opportunity to visit America’s “Thank You.”
These trips are not possible without private support. There is no public support or tax dollars. Prior to Honor Flight Dayton, many of our Veterans had given up all hope of ever seeing their Memorials. Now they have hope! Time is against us! The time to act is NOW!
Approximately 1000 World War II Veterans die every day.
In a few years most all of our World War II Veterans will be gone. This trip is their “last hurrah,” the last time they will be recognized as the conquering victors that collectively and literally saved the world. Because of their sacrifices most of Europe is free, most of the Pacific is free and America is free. This freedom came at a very high cost. We can never repay them for what they have done. An “Honor Flight” is a small token of our appreciation for everything they have done. Throughout Honor Flight Dayton trip, ALL of the Veterans are thanked, recognized and admired for their service. They come home personally knowing how much their country loves them and respects them. The Veterans will never forget this gratitude and adoration.
Please help us change one of their final chapters in their life. ”The Greatest Generation” deserves nothing less. Equal priority is given to any terminally ill Veteran who has never visited their memorial. America thought it was important to build a memorial to their service and sacrifice, Honor Flight Dayton believes it is important for them to visit their memorial before it is too late.
Terminally ill Veterans from wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are also invited to travel with us. Perhaps someday they will have a memorial, but today they need to see how America honors our wonderful fighting men and women.
