Welcome to Honor Flight Southern Nevada
Honor Flight Southern Nevada is a non-profit organization founded in June 2013, as a part of the national Honor Flight Network, created solely to honor America's Veterans for ALL their sacrifices. Honor Flight Southern Nevada is an ALL volunteer organization and our mission is simple: to fly our World War 2 veterans to Washington D.C. to visit the memorials that stand in their honor.
We escort our Heroes to Washington, DC to see how a grateful nation pays tribute to our Greatest Generation! The World War 2 Memorial is America's way of showing our appreciation for their sacrifices, their bravery, their honor, their courage, and acknowledging their efforts that secured our freedom!
Veterans are chosen for the trip on a first-come, first-served basis with priority given to WWII veterans and veterans with a terminal illness. The trip is a three day trip spending the main day at the World War II Memorial, and visiting other Washington D.C. landmarks such as the Korean War Memorial, Vietnam Wall, Lincoln Memorial, the Marine Corps War Memorial and others as time permits. The remaining two days are spent in travel to and from Washington D.C..
All veterans on a flight are accompanied by trained volunteer guardians, who assist veterans for the day. Veterans and volunteers interested in applying should visit our read our FAQs and complete an application here.
We are supported solely through donations and run by volunteers. We have no paid staff. Our volunteers coordinate fundraising, communication with veterans and volunteers, training, medical supervision, travel to and from Washington D.C., and all transportation, activities and meals in Washington D.C. We will continue to organize flights as long as we have the financial support to do so.
