A member of TCHH was lucky enough to be a guardian for a Korean War Veteran that flew on a Freedom Honor Flight to Washington DC on Saturday September 17th. The trip, which was flown out of the La Crosse Freedom Honor Flight chapter, consisted of over 200 veterans. The day was spent traveling to many of the monuments and memorials in DC that were put in place to honor the men and women who fought and served in our country's various wars.
About Freedom Honor Flights
Freedom Honor Flight is a La Crosse-based organization founded in April of 2008. Our goal is simple: to fly our veterans to Washington D.C. to visit the memorials that stand in their honor.
The trip is all in one day, spending several hours at the World War II Memorial, and visiting other Washington D.C. landmarks such as the Korean War Memorial, Vietnam Wall, Lincoln Memorial, the Marine Corps War Memorial and others as time permits.
All veterans on a flight are accompanied by trained volunteer guardians, who assist veterans for the day. Veterans and volunteers interested in applying should visit our read our FAQs and complete an application here.
We are supported solely through donations and run by volunteers. We have no paid staff. Our volunteers coordinate fundraising, communication with veterans and volunteers, training, medical supervision, travel to and from Washington D.C., and all transportation, activities and meals in Washington D.C. We will continue to organize flights as long as we have the financial support to do so.
Many organizations and individuals support Freedom Honor Flight through fundraising events. Please visit our website and Facebook regularly for event information.
