Honor Your Personal Hero

Honor Flight Syracuse invites you to honor the memory of your personal hero.  So many Veterans passed away before they could fly on their Honor Flight to Washington.  We warmly welcome families or friends of deceased Veterans to submit an application now for “Flags of Our Heroes” on Mission 20, April 27, 2024. 

We invite families or friends of deceased Veterans to submit an application and a 5 x 7 photo of the veteran, along with a copy of the obituary notice, if available. Please do not submit death certificates or DD214s.

Please submit your application electronically or download a printable version.

Photos should be mailed to: Honor Flight Syracuse, PO Box 591, Syracuse, NY 13209-0591, ATTN: Flags of Our Heroes.

NOTE: Please send clear photos. Photos of your Veteran in uniform are best, but not required. We strongly recommend you do not send original or irreplaceable photos that could be lost in the mail or misplaced.

For Mission 20, applications and photos must be submitted no later than April 1.

A flag of a deceased War Veteran has been donated, and will be taken, along with your veteran’s photo, on Mission 20 to the Memorials in Washington, D.C. The flag and your Veteran’s photo will be placed in front of the appropriate Memorial and a photo taken. 

After the mission, you will receive an invitation to a solemn ceremony in Veterans Hall at the Onondaga County War Memorial tentatively scheduled for 1:00 pm on Sunday, June 23, 2024. At the ceremony, your family will receive an 8 x 10 photo and a formal certificate from Honor Flight Syracuse honoring the veteran and their participation in spirit with us on the recent Mission. We will do our best to return all items you submit to you after the ceremony.  We deeply appreciate your veteran’s service to our Country. We will be honored to commemorate your veteran’s service through the Flags of Our Heroes Ceremony
