About Middle Georgia Honor Flight

Middle Georgia Honor Flight's mission is “to enable United States veterans of World War II, the Korean War, and Vietnam era wars - as well as any terminally ill veteran - to visit the memorials of armed conflict in Washington DC - at no cost to the veterans.”

The Middle Georgia Honor Flight takes flight only with the unwavering support of dedicated volunteers.

Become a Volunteer

There are numerous ways to contribute to the success of the Middle Georgia Honor Flight mission.

Whether it's working at an information booth during a fair, distributing flyers to VA's and local businesses, assisting with transportation for veterans, organizing fundraisers, handling clerical tasks, answering phones, or welcoming veterans home after an Honor Flight - the opportunities are diverse and abundant.

If you're passionate about supporting the mission of Middle Georgia Honor Flight, we encourage you to reach out and share how you can lend a hand. Let them know your skills, preferences, and availability, and together, we can make a difference in the lives of our deserving veterans.

Become a Guardian

Guardians stand as vital pillars of support for the Middle Georgia Honor Flight, playing a pivotal role in ensuring the safety and creating lasting memories for every veteran on their journey.

Assigned to a single veteran, a Guardian's responsibilities span from accompanying them to and from the airport, guiding them through the tour of Washington DC, sharing a seat on the charter bus, to dining together at various stops.

Their dedication and presence make the entire experience not only secure but also profoundly meaningful.

Whether you are aged 18-60, in good health, and driven by the desire to positively impact the lives of those who have served our nation, or if you are a child or grandchild of a veteran eager to forge lasting memories, the role of a Guardian welcomes individuals from diverse backgrounds and motivations.

This responsibility holds immeasurable value to both the Middle Georgia Honor Flight and the veterans they serve, turning each trip into a cherished and impactful experience.

Become a Sponsor

As a non-profit organization, the Middle Georgia Honor Flight relies on the generosity of donors and partners who support its mission. You can sponsor a veteran or some aspect of a flight, donate directly, or offer a service that will help them continue their mission.
