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.
Inaugural Flight Less Than One Month Away
September 8th, 2018
With final preparations taking place, we are now less than one month away from Honor Flight Louisiana taking it's Inaugural Flight! We are deeply humbled and honored to have thirteen Veterans of World War II, Korean War, and the Vietnam War making this flight with us, and an excited Guardian Corps and Staff who will be accompanying them.
Leaving out of New Orleans International early on October 6th, the Veterans will visit a number of war-specific and branch-specific sites and will participate in a Changing of the Guard at Arlington National Cemetary. We are excited for our Veterans, and very much appreciate all of our donors and volunteers who have contributed thus far to this effort.
