WHAT IS HONOR FLIGHT KENTUCKY (HFK):
HFK is one of 130 plus non-profit charitable chapters located in 42 states that comprise the Honor Flight Network.
WHAT DO WE DO:
Our mission is to fly World War II, Korean War, and Vietnam War veterans to Washington DC for a one day all expenses paid visit to their memorials that are dedicated to their service and sacrifices.
Our next flight, sponsored by Marathon Petroleum, is scheduled for April 27, 2019. Please arrive by 7:30 p.m. for the Welcome Home Celebration at Blue Grass Airport in Lexington.
Two flights will be announced for the fall as soon as confirmed with the airline.
WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT:
Our nation is losing more than 1,500 World War II veterans and more than 500 Korean War veterans each and every day. Our goal is to get as many of these brave heroes from Central, Eastern, and Southern Kentucky to see their memorials before they pass away. More than 250 veterans are on our waiting list for flights next year. Our focus on every component is for the safety and comfort of the participants, and we orient each aspect to create a memorable once-in-a-lifetime experience.
