Honor Flight of Middle Tennessee Veteran Application
Honor Flight recognizes American Military Veterans for their sacrifices and achievements by flying them to Washington, D.C. to see THEIR War Memorials at no cost.
In order for Honor Flight to achieve this goal, Guardians fly with the Veterans on every flight providing assistance, and helping Veterans have a safe, memorable, and rewarding experience.
Top priority is given to World War II, Korean War and terminally ill veterans from all wars.
Vietnam Veterans who are 70 percent or more disabled may apply and will be considered if there are open seats after all terminally ill, World War II and Korean War veterans who apply have been seated on each flight. Vietnam veterans may be offered open seats on flights based on the date their applications were received.
For what you and your fellow veterans have given us, please consider this a small token of appreciation from all of us at Honor Flight. A Doctor and Nurses also travel on each flight, to ensure your well-being.
