About Us

The Central Iowa Honor Flight and all other flights throughout the country allow our WWII hero's to travel to Washington, DC to view the WWII monuments and other monuments at no cost to our veterans.  This is an opportunity for our veterans, many who have never been able to travel to Washington, DC to view a memorial for the service and the ultimate sacrifice  our WWII Veterans did to protect our country.  The Honor Flight Networks believes it's important that the Veterans get to visit and experience their memorial. We need to continue this great opportunity for our Veterans as we are losing approximately 1,000 WWII Veterans a day. We want to give something back to them and show how much we appreciate all they did for us.
