Information from Honor flight of the Ozarks:

Our goal is to get our veterans to Washington D.C. to see their memorials. The safety and security of everyone on every trip are our top priorities. As you are aware, a decision was made by the national Honor Flight organization to cancel all of our scheduled flights for 2020 due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic. These decisions did not come lightly, and were argued and debated heavily at the national and local levels.

In the end, it is our responsibility as a Honor Flight hub to ensure we are doing everything possible to make visits to Washington, D.C. as safe and rewarding as possible.

As 2021 started, we had hopes of making our first scheduled flight in May. However, on March 19th we received communication from Honor Flight Network that all hub flights will be suspended through August 15, 2021.

Their statement reads,

“...Trip Suspension Extension. Due to continued uncertainty with regard to COVID and COVID-related issues, the Board has extended the Honor Flight travel suspensionthrough August 15, 2021. The HFN staff and Board are continuing to monitor developments in vaccine distribution and relevant restrictions in the DC area...”

Honor Flight of the Ozarks is bound by the rules from the national network. As the year progresses, we hope that some of the travel restrictions will be loosened and/or lifted in their entirety. Until that time, we must follow guidelines and take the extra steps and precautions to ensure we can proceed with our scheduled flight on August 24th.

We will keep our Veterans, Guardians, and Volunteers up to date with changes as we are able to do so.

Do you want to help Honor Flight?

Don't have time to volunteer nor the funds to help the way you would like too?

One of the greatest ways you can help Honor Flight is to let these local Heroes know about our program and that it costs the veteran nothing! The price for these trips has already been paid for by alot of blood.

Qualifications are veterans of WWII, Korea, Vietnam. Veteran DID NOT HAVE TO SERVE IN COUNTRY TO QUALIFY. If they served during the campaign periods, regardless of where they where stationed, They qualify!

Did you also know that if you know a veteran of any other campaign after Vietnam that is terminally I'll, they also qualify? Please make note of our phone number, email, and address so you can pass it along to the veteran.

The best part about this is the friends you will make. Most veterans are humbled when you tell them about Honor Flight. So GREET THESE HEROS AND TELL THEM ABOUT HONOR FLIGHT!

As always, you can contact me thru messenger with questions or simply a phone number of a vet that wishes to be contacted. Please share this post, TELL EVERYONE. WE WANT TO GIVE THESE VETERANS A TRIP OF A LIFETIME.

Remember a visit, a handshake is free, dont take much time and you will make a new friend. Heck, in the amount of time that it took you to read all this, you could have already informed a hero.
