The Texas South Plains Honor Flight is a chapter of the Honor Flight Network with 131 hubs in 41 states. Our goal is to send as many veterans to Washington D.C. to pay homage to their fellow brothers and sister in arms by visiting the War and Service Memorials built in their honor.
To ensure that every Veteran has a chance to pay their respects to their brothers and sisters that fought for our country.
WHAT WE DO
Once a year we send approximately 120 WWII, Korean, and Vietnam Veterans on an all-expense paid trip to Washington D.C.
Our organization is comprised entirely of volunteers who take time out of their lives to ensure this trip of a lifetime is possible for these so deserving veterans.
Who We are
The Texas South Plains Honor Flight is an all-volunteer organization that honors the service of our local area veterans with an all-expense paid three-day trip to Washington D.C. to visit their war memorials. This year will mark the 7th annual Honor Flight Trip that is made possible with the support of the entire South Plains community.
Veterans on the chartered Southwest Airlines jet will travel to Washington DC to visit many of the major military memorials, including the Work War II, Korea, and Vietnam Memorials, and three military museums dedicated to their service. They will participate in wreath-laying ceremonies at many of the venues including the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery. U.S. Rep. Jodey Arrington, who represents much of the South Plains and West Texas, and his staff, will welcome the veterans to Capitol Hill.
Texas South Plains Honor Flight Committee volunteers work all year to raise the $220,000 that is needed to sponsor this event. This trip is only possible through the generous donations of South Plains residents, businesses, and organizations.
