World War II and Korean War Veterans, take the Free one-Day tour. sign up to visit your memorials in Washington D.c.
Honor Flight Columbus recognizes and celebrates World War II and Korean War veterans by flying them to Washington, D.C. to visit memorials dedicated to their important service at no cost to them.
Veterans are provided this tour-of-honor experience as a token of our gratitude and respect for their service to our country.

The World War II Memorial was dedicated in May 2004 and the Korean War memorial was dedicated in July 1995. They are long overdue tributes to the men and women who sacrificed so much for our freedom, and a memorial to those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
Regrettably, many of these aging vets have been unable to visit their memorial in a conventional way on their own due to lack of funds or travel impediments. Through volunteer guardians who pay their own way, we overcome many of the problems and escort them on this “trip of a lifetime.” These all-expense-paid, one-day trips to the nation’s capital occur April – November as donations permit.
*Korean War Veterans are those who served between June 25, 1950 to January 31, 1955. Click Here for a brief summary
If you can read it in English, thank a veteran before it is too late...
While an army is said to move on its belly, veterans go to Washinton D.C. through donations from those who appreciate what they did for us. Please give. Thank You. 100 percent of all donations go to support our World War II and Korean vets. All work is done by unpaid volunteers.
