The Honor Flight program is a nation-wide network dedicated to providing WW II veterans a free trip to Washington, D.C. to visit memorials honoring their service and sacrifice. The trip is provided absolutely free of charge to the veterans including the flight, ground transportation, meals/snacks, beverages, and all incidentals.
Springfield has established a newly formed 501 (c )3 non-profit hub for the Honor Flight Network. Our Executive Board with elected Officers governs the Land of Lincoln Honor Flight hub. We are offering memberships and utilize volunteers in order to accomplish this mission.
Trained volunteer guardians will provide assistance and accompany our veterans on their flight. We also give top priority on every flight to a veteran of any war who has a terminal illness.
