As some of you are aware by now, our HFLA team has undergone a number of organizational changes in the past few months. Some of these changes resulted in technical issues, where we have regrettably been unable to return many of the phone calls and emails we have received. These technical issues have been resolved, but has resulted in a back log of calls and emails. Our whole team is currently organizing this information and coming up with a solution to ensure everyone who has contacted us, for whatever reason, is contacted as quickly as possible. We are deeply sorry we have not been able to contact you in return, but please know we are working as diligently as possible to rectify this.

Christopher Kirk Wales, Secretary

Christopher Kirk Wales, Secretary

One of the organizational changes that has occurred has been the addition of a new Secretary, Kirk Wales. He is at the front of this issue, making sure no one is left behind once we begin reaching out. Please welcome us in congratulating him for this role. We know that, as a United States Marine, he will be sure to see this through ‘til the end!

In the meantime, if there are any questions are concerns, please email us at (which goes directly to Kirk) or find us on Facebook at “Honor Flight Louisiana”.

Honor Flight Louisiana | Honoring Our Veterans

The Honor Flight Network is a non-profit organization created solely to honor America’s veterans for their sacrifices. We transport our heroes to Washington, D.C. to visit and reflect at their memorials. Top priority is given to the senior veterans – World War II survivors, along with those other veterans who may be terminally ill. Time is of the essence.


As the last of the Greatest Generation approach their final curtain call, we are witnesses to tremendous loss as we embrace a precious opportunity.  

Over 800 World War II veterans die every day. They take their stories, history, and enormous bravery with them. 

But many are still among us. The time to act is NOW! In another 5-7 years almost all of our World War II veterans will be gone.

Honor Flight Louisiana is a 100% volunteer effort.  All of us, our Board, our Committees, the whole platoon are all volunteers.  None are paid.  All of the money we raise goes directly toward flying veterans to Washington D.C.

We welcome anyone with a heart for honoring veterans. We need your support in all areas.  It takes dozens of volunteers working tirelessly together to have a successful Honor Flight. 

If your heart is telling you to get involved, then "join the cause". Our volunteers donate their talents and services in a variety of ways.

Please, feel free to explore our site, including the “Missions” tab which has a detailed breakdown of our first mission - the Inaugural Flight.
