The Honor Flight Program
Honor Flight recognizes American Veterans for their sacrifices and achievements by flying them to Washington D.C., to see their memorial at no cost. Top priority is given to World War II and terminally ill Veterans from all wars.
Honor Flight was conceived by Earl Morse, a physician assistant and retired Air Force captain, as a tribute to the veterans to whom he provided care. In May 2005, Morse arranged for six small planes to transport 12 World War II veterans to Washington D.C., to see their memorial.
By the end of the first year Honor Flight had transported 137 World War II veterans to see their memorial. By the end of 2011 the Honor Flight Network will have flown 63,000 WWII veterans to see their memorial.
The World War II memorial pays tribute to the 16 million Americans who served during the war. Through the Honor Flight Network, veterans are flown to see their monument on "First-come, first-serve basis".
The Honor Flight Network is a national organization dedicated to the veterans of World War II. Big Sky Honor Flight is a proud member of this network.
Our way of paying a small tribute to those who gave so much,
a memorable, safe, and rewarding TOUR of HONOR!!!
