Franklin County Honor Flight from Union Missouri is a 100% volunteer organization. It is one of the many hubs dedicated to honoring WWII, Korean and Vietnam Veterans by flying them to Washington, DC to visit their memorial at no cost to the veteran. Formed in 2007, FCHF was the first hub west of the Mississippi river.
Veterans are flown to Washington, DC to visit and reflect at their memorial. Funds are raised to make sure that every one of the Honored Veterans fly absolutely free. Their journey to Washington, DC includes bus transportation, meals, t-shirts. Disabled veterans are also welcome, and with advanced arrangements, complimentary wheelchairs and oxygen are provided.
Every trip is escorted by a team of well-trained guardians, team leaders and a flight captain, who accompany this elite group of visitors on the aircraft and to their memorial.
Our mission is to make visiting this trip a reality for as many veterans as possible.
