What is Honor Flight of Middle Tennessee?
Honor Flight is a nation-wide program that takes eligible World War II, Korean War and Vietnam veterans on a free trip to see their war memorials in the nation’s capital.
World War II veterans get top priority followed by Korean War veterans. Terminally ill veterans from those wars who are well enough to fly with a doctor’s approval go to the front of the line. Vietnam Veterans who are at least 70 percent disabled or are terminally ill will be considered on a case by case basis after World War II and Korean War veterans.
Flights include veterans from all the armed services (including the Coast Guard and Merchant Marine service in Wartime). On a recent flight one of the veterans had served in World War II, Korea and Vietnam.
Support Honor Flight
The Honor Flight of Middle Tennessee is a Tennessee 501c3 non-profit cooperation.
It was originally formed as the Southern Middle Tennessee Honor Flight in 2008 with Milton Schafer of Winchester as its chairman.
The name was changed in 2013 to reflect the larger area it covered and it was granted 501c3 status in 2014.
Since 2009 the group has made two flights per year for approximately 50 veterans and their guardians on each flight.
Veterans pay nothing for the trip, all airfare, meals and incidentals are covered by donations.
It cost approximately $20,000 to put on each flight.
