MISSIONS

January Mission
Land of Lincoln Honor Flight
Land of Lincoln Honor Flight is an established 501(c)3 not-for-profit hub of the national Honor Flight Network. Our all volunteer team manages and operates the organization while keeping administrative costs at approximately 1%.
All expenses for this one day trip are the sole responsibility of the Land of Lincoln Honor Flight including the flight, ground transportation, meals/snacks, and beverages. Trained volunteer guardians provide assistance and accompany our veterans on their flight. WWII and Korean Era veterans are given priority on the waiting list. We also give top priority to any Vietnam Era veteran who has a terminal illness.
Our mission is to provide round trip transportation from Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport in Springfield, Illinois for veterans in order of their service (WWII, Korean Era and Vietnam Era) who wish to visit their memorials in Washington, D.C. This one day trip includes air and ground transportation, meals and snacks, t-shirt and cap, and other items provided completely free of charge to the veteran in honor of his/her service to our country.
Honor Flight Network has postponed trips through April 30th, 2021 in response to COVID-19. This was a difficult but necessary decision to ensure the safety and continued health of our country’s most important natural resource – our Veteran heroes.
We are disappointed but looking forward to a brighter future. Land of Lincoln Honor Flight is dedicated to serving all Veterans currently on our wait list (as well as those who have yet to apply) as soon as conditions are safe. The LLHF Board will begin planning for 2021 flights and will share our anticipated 2021 flight dates as soon as they are confirmed.
Please check this website or our Land of Lincoln Honor Flight Facebook page for immediate updates as we work through these unprecedented times.
