Yay! I cannot wait to get back to welcoming our amazing veterans home! 🙂

Yes!!!! So excited to get back to honoring our vets with this amazing organization!!

Accompanied a WWII veteran on his Honor Flight in October 2014. Such an honor for me and an unforgettable experience for us both. So glad you’ll be flying again soon!❤️

My Dad's flight was about 5 years ago too! He talks about it to everyone too! I am so glad you can continue your mission of celebrating and honoring our veterans! Keep up the great work! ❤️

My dad is excited! He is a Korean War Veteran. His flight got cancelled due to COVID-19. He keeps asking me about it.

My dad did a flight almost 5 years ago and said it was one of the most meaningful things of his life. You all are a class act!! Everywhere he goes he hopes to interact with a veteran to encourage them to go.

Such a blessing to so many. One of the highlights for Dad!

God bless you all!

Beautiful photos

Can’t wait to greet these heroes at the memorials!!🇺🇸

This is such a gift!!!!! Fly high! Semper Fi

❤️🇺🇸

Testimonials

“My heartfelt thanks to Greater St. Louis Honor Flight crew for the opportunity you gave me to visit our nations Capital and most importantly our own World War II Memorial. I certainly enjoyed the entire day which was full of pleasant surprises. It is nice to know that many people in the USA appreciate what we did 66 years ago and take the time to say ‘Thanks’.”

– Robert Lumley Sr.
