Honoring Veterans

Honor Flight Syracuse flies Central NY heroes to Washington, DC to visit and reflect together at their memorials.

In accordance with Honor Flight policy, priority order for each mission is given to elder WWII veterans, Korean War veterans and terminally ill veterans from any era.  In addition, we’re including veterans of the Vietnam War and other eras. Our goal is to provide the Honor Flight experience to every veteran who desires to fly with us.

We generally fly two missions per year, one in late April, the other in late September or early October.  We’re continually accepting applications for our future missions. Veteran applications are prioritized in the order in which they are received, except in extraordinary circumstances. Please review the Frequently Asked Questions for details.

Unfortunately veterans cannot choose what flight they will travel on due to medical and logistic issues associated with the flight process. We also encourage veterans from the Rochester and Buffalo area's to visit and register with their local Honor Flight hubs before registering with Syracuse Honor Flight.

Thank you, Honor Flight, for a fantastic trip filled with emotion and surprise. I am still recovering from the treatment I received from everyone and I am eternally grateful and always will be. Blessings to all at Honor Flight.

THANK YOU, Honor Flight! You made my Dad very happy today.

It’s not about the work we do. It’s about the work they did. It’s an honor to be part of Syracuse Honer Flight. Nothing like seeing a veteran so eager to go at 4:38am.

Love to see those quilts on all of their laps. Glad to see the ladies are still making them. I know it is a lot of work and they should be commended for their hard work and time.

Such a great thing for veteran's. Thank you Honor Flight volunteers for insuring this keeps happening in Syracuse.

You all put together an incredible event! Thank you, for this labor of love. And thank you to Hancock for hosting this program!

An absolutely powerful, amazing and totally unforgettable mission 13 !!!

Thank you to everyone involved in this Honor Flight and especially to Monica Piccolo for making this such a special day for Dad/Grampa Piccolo!

Thanks for letting me part of your day! DC Tour Guides

Welcome home Mission 13!!! 🇺🇸

Fantastic job by all the volunteers. It was great to see so many young people honoring the vets. The CAP group did a great job welcoming people as they came in the door

Thank you to everyone that made this possible for our hero’s! ❤️💙

We just landed in Syracuse. We are so sad we missed it!

What an awesome program you have - great adventure for our Veterans

Thank you Honor Flight staff.

What a great trip. My Dad and I went a few years ago and he still talks about the trip! Thank you!

Such a wonderful thing you do! I went with my dad who is a WWII vet about 4 years ago. He talks about it all the time. I’m so glad I got to spend that special time with him. Thanks for the memories!

Hope you are all having Fun!! Thanks to all the volunteers.

Please give Marv our live. So very glad he got to do this!

How many Veterans made the trip?

More photos of the veterans, please?

What time will they be returning to the airport to be welcomed home?

Thank you. Veterans for all of your service to Our Country. 🇺🇸

Fantastic!!
