About HFS: Our honored heroes travel absolutely free

MISSION STATEMENT: Honor America’s veterans by transporting them to Washington, D.C. to visit the national memorials dedicated to their service and sacrifice.

GOAL: Help every single war veteran in the greater Syracuse area, willing and capable, to obtain a flight (or a bus-trip) to visit THEIR memorial at NO COST to them.

PRIORITY: Top priority is given to America’s most senior-citizen heroes – veterans of World War-II and any war veteran with a terminal illness. Additionally, the program has begun our outreach to Korean War and Vietnam War veterans. In the future, veterans of other conflicts will be served on a chronological basis.

MOTTO: “We can’t all be heroes. Some of us have to stand on the curb and clap as they go by.” — Will Rogers

In May 2012, Syracuse became an official hub in the Honor Flight Network. Since then our founding board and core group of volunteers have built a viable, long-term organization to provide “the Honor Flight Mission” experience to all veterans across all conflicts.

Honor Flight Syracuse continues to execute our ambitious plan to fly at least two (2) missions each year to serve Veterans from the greater Syracuse area – covering ten counties in Central NY, Northern NY, and the Mohawk Valley. We exist to express our deep and undying gratitude to the service men and women who so deeply sacrificed to win and maintain America’s freedom.

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.
