Honor Flight Syracuse Mission 20 took flight on April 27, 2024. Watch the following video for a recap of a memorable day in Washington

Purple Heart veteran, dad, will never forget their Honor Flight

Manny Martinez is 102. His heroism and sacrifice in World War 2 is “just what the Greatest Generation does.” And his service didn’t stop when he came home from Europe. Watch his story below

HFS Mission “changed their lives”

Like many veterans, Bob Green didn’t want to take the Honor Flight at first. But after he and wife Patti flew Mission 15, it was a whole different story. A story that ended too soon. Bob passed away from Covid 19 three months later. Patti remains a dedicated HFS volunteer. Watch the story below

Grateful Veterans say thanks

“Your team is blessed with countless caring individuals that bring each mission to a visible resounding success. A heartfelt and huge thank you to one and all!” (Robert Kot, HFS Mission 18 veteran)
