The Honor Flight San Diego mission is to take our most senior veterans (currently WWII and Korean War) and those who have a terminal illness to Washington, D.C. to visit the memorials built for their service and sacrifice. Since 2010, we have taken over 1,400 veterans on their "Tour of Honor." Our WWII veterans are now 90+ years old and our mission could not be more urgent to get them on this trip before it is too late.
We want to take a flight of 80 veterans to Washington, D.C. in October 2019, but we need $250,000 to accomplish that. All expenses are covered for the veterans who fly at no cost to them - it is the least we can do to say THANK YOU!
Honor Flight San Diego is completely funded by your donations; we receive no government funding and we have no employees. Since we are 100% staffed by volunteers, every $$ we raise directly supports our veterans! Our veterans THANK YOU for allowing them to complete this one last mission!
Honor Flight San Diego is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and all donations are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law. For more information about Honor Flight San Diego, please visit our website at: www.honorflightsandiego.org
