The Eastern Iowa Honor Flight is a non-profit 501(C)3 charity dedicated to sending veterans to Washington D. C. to visit historical sites and memorials dedicated to their service. We proudly serve the veterans of Linn, Jones, Benton, So. Tama, Iowa, Johnson, Marshall, Jasper, Poweshiek and Washington counties. Veterans from surrounding areas are welcomed if they are able to fly out of The Eastern Iowa Airport in Cedar Rapids. Learn more about the National Honor Flight Network at

The memorials we visit are the WWII, FDR, MLK, Lincoln, Korean War, Vietnam, Arlington National Cemetery, USMC and the USAF Memorial.  The veterans are also taken on a city tour where they are able to see the Smithsonian, Capitol, White House and various other historical buildings.
