Honor Flight Network and the Bluegrass Chapter:
The first Honor Flight flew May 21, 2005 with six small planes flying 12 WW II Veterans, departing out of Springfield, Ohio. In 2006, with a waiting list of Veterans expanding rapidly, the Honor Flight transitioned to commercial airline carriers to accommodate the maximum number of Veterans as possible.
Based on recent statistics, we are losing WW II Veterans at the rate of 1000 – 1500 per day. Honor Flight will continue do whatever it takes to fulfill the dreams of our Veterans and, very importantly, our senior heroes travel absolutely free.
Partnering with HonorAir in Hendersonville, North Carolina and Hero Flight in Provo, Utah, the “Honor Flight Network” was formed. The Honor Flight Network is aggressively expanding their programs to other cities across the nation.
Honor Flight Bluegrass Chapter is one of the newest hubs of the Honor Flight Network. The Bluegrass Chapter serves Veterans in the Bluegrass region and Southern Indiana. Since 2008 Honor Flight Bluegrass Chapter has transported 1375 WWII Veterans. The chapter has four flights planned for 2014 hoping to serve 250 or more of our WWII Veterans!
Subsequent to the WW II Veterans, our efforts will then focus on our Korean and then Vietnam Veterans, honoring them similarly. Please take time to tour our site and email or call us with any questions you may have.
The Honor Flight Bluegrass Chapter is a Louisville Kentucky based all volunteer non-profit organization created to honor America’s Honored Veterans from Kentucky and Southern Indiana for their service and sacrifices.
We fly our heroes to Washington, DC to visit and reflect at their respective memorials.
Top priority is given to Honored Veterans from any war or conflict who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness, those with too few tomorrows and the senior Honored Veterans – World War ll survivors.
The Honor Flight Bluegrass Chapter’s goal is to become the most caring, respectful and financially stable all-volunteer chapter within the framework of the National Organization as well as fulfilling the fiduciary responsibility as the custodian of funds entrusted to the Chapter by individual donors, businesses and organizational grants to carry out the mission as a IRS 501 (c)(3) approved non-profit organization.
