History of Honor Flight
What is Honor Flight?  
Watch this video.  It is a good overview of the Honor Flight Network and what this
program means to the tens of thousands of WWII Veterans that Honor Flight
have transported to THEIR memorial.

The Honor Flight Network program was conceived by Earl
Morse, a physician assistant and Retired Air Force Captain.
Earl wanted to honor the veterans he had taken care of for
the past 27 years. After retiring from the Air Force in 1998,
Earl was hired by the Department of Veterans Affairs to work
in a small clinic in Springfield, Ohio. In May of 2004, 65 years
after the wars end, the World War II Memorial was unveiled
in Washington, DC. The Memorial quickly became a hot topic
for the Veterans around the VA clinic where Morse worked.  
However, Morse only knew of one patient who actually made
it to the memorial, the rest did not survive long enough to
see their plans through or simply could not afford to go.

Morse formed National Honor Flight in order to raise funds
for Veterans to receive an all-expense paid trip to
Washington, DC to view the Memorial that was erected in
their honor. The Honor Flight Network now has over 70
chapters throughout the United States and 2011 marks their
seventh year running. They have successfully and have
safely transported over 81,000 World War II, Korean, and
Vietnam Veteran’s to Washington, DC.
Hudson Valley Honor Flight
We are a local chapter of the National Honor Flight Network serving
right here in the Hudson Valley. Our chapter covers veterans in the
following counties:
Orange, Ulster, Westchester, Rockland, Putnum, Dutchess.

First priority is given to World War II Veterans but we will also be
open for terminally ill Veterans from other wars. Our goal is to have
two flights a year depart from Stewart Airport and take Hudson Valley
Veterans to their Memorial. It is a one-day trip involving a unique
itinerary designed to give the Veterans the complete Honor Flight
experience that they so rightly deserve - to show how grateful we are
for their sacrifices and what their service meant to this country.
Our first Honor Flight Details:
Date:          May 8th 2012 (V.E.Day 67 years later)
Location:    We will depart from Stewart International Airport in  
Newburgh, NY and arrive in Dulles International Airport in Dulles, VA.
Airline:  We will be using
JetBlue as our air carrier
Time:  To be determined.  We are still working out the itinerary.
Who is going:  We are looking to take 100 WWII Veterans and 50
Guardians(this includes medical staff and media)
