Mission Statement

Badger Honor Flight is a regional affiliate of the National Honor Flight Network. The purpose of the Honor Flight Network is to ensure that World War II, Korean War, Vietnam War and terminally ill veterans from any war have the opportunity to see the memorials that have been erected in their honor. Badger Honor Flight provides all amenities to the veterans, including all transportation and meals on the day of the flight. Everything is free to the veterans because of how much they have sacrificed for this great country already.


Badger Honor Flight (BHF) is a regional hub of the Honor Flight Network (r).

Badger Honor Flight is a non-profit organization created solely to honor America’s veterans for all their sacrifices and to transport our heroes to Washington, D.C. to visit and reflect at their memorials. Top priority is given to the senior veterans - World War II survivors, along with those other veterans who may be terminally ill. There are currently 140 hubs in 45 states. BHF is currently accepting and flying World War II, Korean, and Vietnam War-era veterans. To date we have flown 39 flights from Madison, WI to Washington D.C., and just surpassed our 3000th Veteran. BHF is a 100% volunteer-staffed organization.
