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.Β  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.Β  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.

Honor Flight Syracuse, Inc. is a fully registered New York State 501c3 public charity and is entirely volunteer led. Our region encompasses 10 counties: Cayuga, Onondaga, Oswego, Cortland, Madison, Oneida, Herkimer, Jefferson, Lewis, and St. Lawrence.

Amazing!!

Honor Flight Syracuse celebrated the 100th birthday today of WWII Navy Veteran Francesco "Frank" DiPino. He was joined by family, friends and neighbors and enjoyed the parade of vehicles that drove past his house.

Frank enlisted in the Navy in November 1942 and served aboard the USS Fulton, a submarine tender. His job was to repair and maintain US submarines as a Motor Machinist Mate 2nd Class. He was in the Pacific Theater and made stops in Saipan, New Guinea, and Pearl Harbor. He became a rare "Navy Golden Shellback" when he simultaneously passed the equator and the Prime Meridian while on board the USS Fulton. He served until December 24, 1945.

We thank you for your service to our country, Frank, and wish you a very happy birthday.
