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.

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.

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.

Honor Flight Syracuse celebrated WWII Veteran, Joe Jonientz’s, 100th Birthday with members of the CNY community this afternoon! This Centenarian was surprised by the festivities coordinated in his honor and included his own “Day-After-Thanksgiving Parade” lead by the Liverpool and Mattydale Fire Departments! This chipper fellow had local media crews in stitches as he retold many of his stories from his time in Africa and Italy back in the early 1940s. Happy Birthday, Joe!! ... See MoreSee Less
