Veteran HFC Application

Honor Flight Columbus accepts applications from America’s Senior Veterans.

Senior Veterans are those who served on active duty prior to May 7th, 1975, or over 20 years in the Guard/Reserves in that same time period. In addition, a terminally ill veteran from any era will be served as soon as possible. We began taking Vietnam War veterans on regular flights in the spring of 2017.

Accordingly, WWII veterans will continue to have top priority, with Korean veterans next. We will call Vietnam veterans in sequence by the dates of applications received.

It is our goal to take Senior Veterans on this trip of celebration as long as donations from the public continue and volunteers are available. 

The Director of Guardian Operations will assign each veteran a trained volunteer guardian. Guardians are selected and assigned to complement the needs of each veteran on a flight. 


Safe travel is the goal of everyone at HFC. All assigned guardians are required to complete training (two weeks prior to their assigned Mission) and must meet other requirements including a guardian donation of $400 to help offset costs incurred for their seat on the trip.

Unfortunately, a spouse who is not a veteran may not accompany the veteran. Seats on the trip for those who served are limited.
