Common Questions About Honor Flight
Q: How much does it cost? How much money do I need to bring?
A: There is no cost to veterans. If you drive yourself, you will need to pay for parking. Honor Flight Columbus is not able to pay for overnight accomodations.
Q: How is Honor Flight funded?
A: Honor Flight Columbus is funded by donations from individuals, civic, fraternal and social clubs, and businesses in Central Ohio who recognize the great accomplishments and sacrifices of veterans and want them to have the special opportunity to see their memorial before it's too late. Students from many schools have held fundraisers and are significant contributors with funds and volunteers.
Q: Can I make a donation to Honor Flight?
A: Honor Flight gratefully accepts donations from anyone EXCEPT World War II veterans who have not traveled with us. World War II veterans have given enough: this is our way of saying "Thank You!" Once a veteran has traveled with Honor Flight, he or she can make a donation so that other vets can go, but it is not a requirement.
Q: How does Honor Flight decide which veterans get to go?
A: Veterans are flown on a "first-come, first-served basis." Within the applicants, top priority is currently given to World War II veterans and all other veterans with terminal illness. Our second priority is to Korean War veterans.
Q: Are terminally ill World War II veterans given any special priority?
A: YES! Such veterans go to the top of the list for the next flight departing to Washington, D.C. as part of our TLC Program. Not only are World War II veterans given this top priority, but also any terminally ill veteran, who has never been able to visit his or her memorial, is given the same priority. Please call us for more information.
