Honor Flight Southern Arizona
Honoring the veterans of: Pima, Cochise, Graham, Greenlee, Pinal, Santa Cruz, Southern Gila, Yuma Counties and the Tohono O’odham Nation
Honor Flight Southern Arizona is deeply committed to paying tribute to our nation’s heroes from pivotal moments in history. To be eligible for an Honor Flight, a veteran must be a Southern Arizona RESIDENT who served Honorably on Active Duty, in the Reserves, National Guard or Inactive Class 3 Reserves (IRR) anywhere on Earth, in any branch of service PRIOR to 07 May 1975. A veteran who meets these qualifications is eligible to be honored with an unparalleled journey to witness their respective national memorials in Washington DC.
These aren’t just Memorials; they’re testaments to the valor and courage of those who answered the call when it was needed most. Every one of these brave men and women put their lives on the line, stepping forward during the gravest global crises, ensuring America’s continued freedom and shielding us from foreign threats. As time marches on, it becomes even more crucial for us, the beneficiaries of their bravery, to keep the flame of their legacy alive. It’s not just our responsibility but our profound duty to ensure their stories, struggles, and sacrifices aren’t relegated to the pages of history books but are celebrated and remembered. We owe them our deepest gratitude for the foundation they laid and the sacrifices they made years ago. Let us come together, hand in hand, to honor them with this memorable journey that serves as a small token of our nation’s immense appreciation.
As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Honor Flight Southern Arizona operates solely through the generosity and support of our community. Every aspect of our mission is completely funded by donations and various fundraising efforts, ensuring that there is absolutely no cost to the veterans we honor. This is our way of showing our deepest respect and gratitude to those who have served. Furthermore, our organization is driven by the spirit of volunteerism, with each member of our board and staff contributing their time and effort without compensation. This all-volunteer ethos reflects our unwavering commitment to honoring our veterans, demonstrating that every penny raised goes directly towards creating these unforgettable experiences for our nation’s heroes. Together, we forge a strong bond of gratitude and remembrance, upholding the legacy of those who have selflessly served our country.
