Honor Flight San Diego (HFSD) is a non-profit branch of the nationwide Honor Flight Network which consists of over 130 independent “hubs” across America. HFSD escorts veterans to Washington D.C. to see their memorials using monies donated by individuals, foundations, associations, business owners and corporations who wish to recognize their contributions and thank them for their service and sacrifice to the United States and its citizens.
Top priority for our trips is given to the most senior veterans, currently World War II survivors, and to veterans who are terminally ill.
Of all of the wars in recent memory, World War II truly threatened our very existence as a nation and as a culturally diverse and free society. With over one thousand World War II veterans passing away each day, the opportunity to express our sincere thanks to these brave men and women is running out.
We say thank you to all of our veterans and extend a special thanks to our most senior World War II Veterans for their dedication and commitment to protecting the freedoms enjoyed by so many here in the greatest nation on earth, the United States of America.
We invite our veterans to join us on your “Mission of Honor” and we hope everyone else can provide a donation that will help support these memorable trips.
