As the ranks of America's World War II Veterans continue to shrink at the rate of 1,000 per day, so does our chance to honor these heroes, these members of "The Greatest Generation."

 

Central Illinois Honor Flight offers free flights for Veterans to the World War II Memorial erected to commemorate the sacrifices of these brave individuals in Washington, D.C.   In our first year, Central Illinois Honor Flight flew 296 World War II Veterans from the Central Illinois area to see their memorial.

September 13-14, 2012 - Charter Flight from Marion, IL.

October 18-19, 2012 - Charter Flight from Champaign, IL.

November 10-11, 2012 - Veteran's Day Mission.  Charter Flight from Decatur, IL.
