STATEMENT ON VACCINE REQUIREMENT
The Honor Flight Network will require that all participants on Honor Flight trips be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Some Honor Flight veterans are in the CDC’s high-risk categories and reside in assisted living facilities with other vulnerable populations. At this time, requiring that all participants be fully vaccinated is the best step we can take to keep our veterans safe while experiencing a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

We honor those Veterans and their families with a special program and ceremony at the memorials referred to as “Flags of Our Heroes.” It is our desire to show the respect so richly deserved to the deceased WWII, Korean War, and Vietnam War Veterans who never had the opportunity to visit THEIR memorials and to the families of those Veterans.
For those who would like to participate in this endeavor, fill out the online Flags of our Heroes Application form
If you do not live in Central Florida, you can fly with us, but there might be better options. Villages Honor Flight (VHF) will accept vets from anywhere. Our region of focus is Central Florida (in particular the counties of Lake, Sumter, Marion, Citrus and Hernando) but we accept vets from any location. Like virtually every other hub, VHF flies out of a local airport, Orlando in our case. We also have several events before the actual flights and a post-flight reunion. Thus the transportation logistics for vets outside Central Florida could get difficult. We recommend that vets from outside the Central Florida area check with the hub that is closest to them about getting on their list first. View the directory of all Honor Flight hubs. Volunteers (other than Guardians) provide a wide range of services. For specific volunteer opportunities, call 352-432-1382.
