Honor Flight of Dubuque and the Tri States is pleased to announce the tentative schedule of two flights for Monday and Tuesday, May 22nd and 23rd of 2023. Veterans of WWII, the Korean Conflict, and the Vietnam War will be invited to see the memorials built in their honor.
It is an exciting day for the veterans and this no-cost, once-in-a-lifetime tour is a “thank you,” for the service they rendered and the freedoms they secured for Americans as well as people around the globe when serving in the U.S. military.
The cost to send a veteran on this trip is approximately $700; however, funds to provide this trip, which is free to qualified veterans, come from a grateful public. There is no funding from federal, state, or local governments for these trips. Guardians who travel with those veterans needing assistance will be asked to make a contribution of $500 to cover their own expenses.
Veterans are called in the order that they submit their applications, with a priority given to WWII veterans, followed by those serving in the Korean Conflict, and then to those serving in the Vietnam War. Terminally ill veterans from any war will be given top priority.
The Honor Flight of Dubuque and the Tri States, a non-profit organization, understands and appreciates the service of all veterans no matter when or where they served.
