Westchester County Airport – May 20, 2017
Generally, initial confirmations go out 3 months prior to the next flight.
YES! We have recently begun taking Korean War veterans on our flights. Please note that our WWII Veterans do take priority, though. We keep all Korean War veterans’ applications on file, and selections for the flights are made in the order the applications are received. Applications can be mailed to our PO Box.
While our TOP priority is the safe travel of ALL the veterans, family members can apply to be guardians and are given priority over guardians who are not linked with a veteran. Spouses, however, are not permitted to go on the flight and serve as guardians. Who will or will not serve as a guardian, and how many guardians will be needed, is the responsibility of the Executive Director and the HVHF Flight Committee. That decision is based upon many factors such as the number of disabled veterans signed up for the flight and the number of family members requested to be guardians. Medically trained, active duty military personnel and veterans who have previously participated in a flight may also be given priority and may serve as flight and bus leaders for flight day.
No. Spouses are not permitted to go per the Honor Flight Network.
The cost is FREE for World War II veterans. You do not need to bring any money, unless you intend to purchase souvenirs.
Veterans are generally selected and flown on a “first-come, first-served basis.” Within the applicants, top priority is currently given to WWII veterans and veterans with terminal illnesses.
