HONOR FLIGHT LONG ISLAND

is proud to be a part of this national nonprofit organization. Our mission is to see that all of Long Island’s WWII Veterans get a chance to see their memorial.  Please help us give the men and women of our Greatest Generation the thank you they deserve before it’s too late! Our mission is urgent.

Throughout the Honor Flight Trip

The WWII Veterans are recognized, admired and thanked for their service. They come home knowing how much their country loves them and appreciates them. Veterans never forget this gratitude and adoration.

"The Greatest Generation" deserves nothing less.

Trips are simply not possible without public support. Prior to the Honor Flight Network, our veterans had given up hope of ever seeing their WWII Memorial. Now they have hope... but time is not on our side. This mission is urgent!
