We are a non-profit organization that relies fully on private, public and corporate donations in order to make these trips happen for our WWII and Korean War Veterans.
Thanks to everyone who has helped in making our 2013 flights a great success!
Thank you to all Veterans, Guardians and Volunteers who helped us out in various ways in 2013. With your help, we pulled off a record four flights this year!!
We truly appreciate everyone's time, effort and support in our cause. Thank you for giving that 110 percent in everything you do.
A very special thank you to our countless donors - without you, this dream would not be possible.
Why? On Monday, December 8, 1941, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt appeared before Congress giving what is now referred to as the Infamy Speech.
Yesterday, December 7, 1941 — a date which will live in infamy — the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.
Shortly thereafter, Congress declared war against Japan. More than 226,000 Iowans answered that call serving as sailors, soldiers, Marines and airmen in the largest war the world had ever seen.
Sadly, there are fewer and fewer of these men and women alive today and few have had the opportunity to see the National WWII Memorial dedicated to them on April 29, 2004 (59 years after the war's end).
Eastern Iowa Honor Flight is dedicated to making that happen and you can help us give these heroes the appreciation they so gratefully deserve.
