Our Next Flight

Message from Honor Flight Long Island President Bill Jones.

Dear Honor Flight Long Island Family,

UPDATE AS OF: March 17, 2022

Our next flight will be on Saturday, JUNE 4, 2022.

We will have about 3 World War II veterans on the flight and 35 Vietnam War and Vietnam Era veterans.

This flight would have consisted of mainly Korean War veterans, but the Korean Memorial is under reconstruction and will not be finished until sometime this summer. We anticipate that our fall 2022 flight will consist primarily of our Korean War veterans.

We are thrilled to be taking these Vietnam War and Era veterans to see the most visited Memorial in Washington: The Wall.
By itself, The Wall has helped to heal our nation from the terrible divide of that era as well as providing some solace for each and every veteran. And Honor Flight helps by providing the opportunity for America to say “Welcome Home.”

Our World War II veterans are simply the best! We, at Honor Flight, feel blessed that these veterans will be part of the same experience that over 1700 other WWII veterans have had over the past 14 years.
We’re back and we could not be more pleased!
Questions? Contact Jamie Bowden at (631)-702-2423.

God Bless the United States of America.
Best,
Bill Jones, President
Honor Flight Long Island

Flights are Scheduled in the Spring and the Fall.

This is a SAMPLE ITINERARY:

Our group will muster at Long Island MacArthur Airport two hours before departure to check in, issue boarding passes name tags, and souvenir T-shirts, meet and greet, take pictures, and get through security.
The flight is a quick hour to Baltimore Washington International Airport where a waiting motor coach takes us on the 50-minute drive to Washington DC and the WWII, Korean and Vietnam Memorials. We eat lunch on the bus and watch a great video about how these Memorials came to be.
We usually spend time at the WWII memorial, frequently among Honor Flight groups from other parts of the country. We take a group picture of all veterans and guardians at this time. If family or friends will be meeting you in D.D., you should tell them to meet our group at our first Memorial stop of the day. 
We will visit Arlington National Cemetery and depending on weather, traffic and timing we might visit the Navy Memorial, the Air Force Memorial, or other area high-points.
We’ll have dinner at the airport when we can take a little more time to relax and enjoy our group. The return flight is a quick hour, then we're home.
The only thing the veterans are responsible for is getting themselves to and home from the airport. If getting a ride is a real issue, we can help with that. Call Jamie Bowden, 631 702-2423.
