Mission Statement

Honor Flight Chicago was founded to recognize our Veterans - most specifically our WWII Veterans - with a day of honor, remembrance and celebration from a proud and grateful nation.

Honor Flight Chicago is a 501c3 non-profit organization, founded in February 2008. Four Chicago women asked themselves what they could do to honor and thank our Veterans - especially our WWII Vets, whose courage and determination to do the job they were sent to do still echoes down the years.

The founding members have assembled the talents and commitment of a group of people who share their love and respect for our veterans, dedicated people who are working to deliver on the promise of Honor Flight. Honor Flight Chicago is very proud of its staff of over 350 volunteers and guardians. Without these dedicated individuals, we would not be able to serve our Veterans in the capacity we do. Our volunteers and guardians work year round through Veteran outreach, community and school education, fundraising and public relations.

Description

The American Veteran is one of our greatest treasures...those men and women who answered our nation's call, especially at times of our greatest need. Our mission is to honor and thank those Veterans - especially now our WWII Veterans by bringing them to Washington DC, at no cost to them, for a day of honor. Won't you join us as we treat these humble, unassuming men and women to a most extraordinary day? Volunteer to help us with our flight logistics or become a guardian to safeguard our Vets on their flight day. The cost is roughly $500 per Veteran to go to Washington. Donate with your time or resources to help us send as many Vets as we can. There are an estimated 25,000WWII Veterans in the Chicagoland area - we'd like to reach every one. We invite you to view our Emmy-nominated documentary narrated by Gary Sinise and see what we are all about.
