Description:

Eastern Iowa Honor Flight would not be successful without the generous support of our guardians. Guardians play a significant role on every trip, ensuring that every veteran has a safe and memorable experience from the time they enter the airport, to the moment you hand them off to their awaiting family. Duties include, but are not limited to; physically assisting the veterans in/out of wheelchairs, pushing the wheelchair at the memorials, assisting them throughout the day as needed, and the ability to walk long distances is required. Guardians are also responsible for their own expenses with the flight through a $550 donation.

We are a non-profit organization that relies fully on private, public and corporate donations in order to make these trips happen for our WWII and Korean War Veterans.

Description:
Eastern Iowa Honor Flight is a non-profit organization dedicated to sending local Veterans to Washington D. C. to visit various historical sites and war memorials. (Learn more about the National Network at www.honorflight.org)

These memorials include the WWII Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, Korean War Memorial, Vietnam Memorial, USMC Memorial, USAF Memorial and Arlington National Cemetery. The WWII Veterans are also taken on a city tour where they are able to see the Smithsonian, Capitol, White House and various other historical buildings.

We proudly serve the Veterans of Linn, Jones, Benton, So. Tama, Iowa, Johnson and Washington Counties. We are also proud to now welcome Marshall, Jasper and Poweshiek Counties!!

Veterans from surrounding areas are welcomed if they are able to fly out of The Eastern Iowa Airport in Cedar Rapids.

Since Eastern Iowa Honor Flight began in 2009, we have transported more than 800 Iowa WWII Veterans from Cedar Rapids to Washington, D.C.
