Flag City Honor Flight Trip to Washington, D.C. @ Washington, D.C.
Jun 7 all-day

Flag City Honor Flight has announced that it will offer flights to Washington, D.C., on June 7 and Sept. 20.

As the Findlay-based hub of the national Honor Flight network, Flag City Honor Flight flies veterans free of charge to the nation’s capital to visit their memorials.

Flag City Honor Flight normally makes just one flight to Washington each year. However, a second flight has been added for 2017 due to additional funds having been raised.

Veterans, their accompanying guardians, and a small staff of Flag City Honor Flight personnel will travel to Washington, D.C., to visit the war memorials, particularly the World War II memorial. Other stops include the Korean War and Vietnam War memorials and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery.

The one-day flights depart from Grand Aire Terminal at Toledo Express Airport.

Flag City Honor Flight is a nonprofit organization with 501(c)(3) status. Trips are made possible by donations from individuals, organizations and businesses. Veterans pay nothing and guardians are asked to make a tax-deductible donation of $400.

Flag City Honor Flight services primarily northwestern Ohio, southern Michigan and parts of Indiana. However, applications are accepted from any veteran, no matter where he or she lives.

World War II veterans receive the highest priority. Those who served during the Korean War are second priority, followed by those who served during the Vietnam War. Flag City Honor Flight is also looking for those who served between World War II and Korea, or between Korea and Vietnam. Those who are terminally ill may be moved up the list.

Any veteran is eligible to go on a flight, from any branch of service and any campaign.

Both 2017 flights are filling up quickly, and any interested party is encouraged to respond soon.

More detailed information for veterans, potential guardians, event volunteers and donors is available at www.flagcityhonorflight.org. Application forms may be downloaded from the website. The organization can be reached at info@flagcityhonorflight.org.
