We Fly Our Heroes To Washington, DC.
Take A Flight
We serve Veterans in Colorado and surrounding states.
We have many volunteer opportunities. You can be a part of making our veterans’ dreams a reality! Your help makes a difference.
We do not receive government funding and depend entirely on the generous (tax deductible) donations from people like you.
Rocky Mountain Honor Flight is a Denver Colorado-based non-profit organization formed in 2007. Our goal is to fly every able and willing Veteran to Washington D.C. to visit the monuments and memorials dedicated to their service. Our priority is with World War II and terminally ill Veterans. We also accept applications from all Veterans. We are a member of Honor Flight Network, which began this activity in 2005 and began flying with commercial charter aircraft in 2006 from Dayton, Ohio. There are now about 130 “hubs”, from which flights originate around the country. National Honor Flight Network provides us with logistical support as well as arranging activities in Washington D.C.
Veterans must fill out an application form, which can be found on our application page and printed or downloaded. Trained volunteer guardians accompany all Veterans on each flight. Volunteers can apply to be a guardian by downloading or printing the form available here. Various private and commercial donors support us. We are supported by many Veterans’ organizations in the region. We have no paid staff. Our volunteers organize the Veterans for travel, arrange the travel both to and from Washington, and arrange all transportation, activities and meals in Washington. The “journey” is usually 3 days and 2 nights, spending several hours at the World War II Memorial, and visiting other Washington landmarks such as the Korean War Memorial, Vietnam Wall, Lincoln Memorial, Arlington National Cemetery and changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknowns and the Marine Corps War Memorial.
At the current time, for obvious reasons, priority is given to World War II Veterans. If a Veteran is certified terminally ill by a doctor but able to travel, he or she moves up the priority list no matter what their era of service. We hope to launch at least four flights per year and perhaps more, providing we get enough financial support. Interested in donating? DONATE NOW
PROUD MEMBER OF HONOR FLIGHT
The Board of Directors of Rocky Mountain Honor Flight take the health and safety of our Veterans, Guardians, and Volunteer Staff very seriously. With regards to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are closely monitoring the recommendations of leading authorities such as the World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Honor Flight Network, and others. At this time, the Board of Directors has made the difficult but prudent decision to suspend all 2020 and spring 2021 trips. We will continue to monitor the situation and recommendations to determine if there will be any additional impacts. Our intent will be to resume our mission of honoring our Veterans with trips to Washington DC as soon as we can ensure an appropriate level of safety for all involved. We hope to travel again in the fall of 2021. The Board of Directors has determined that proof of COVID-19 vaccination will be required by all Veterans, Guardians, and Volunteers who wish to travel with us to Washington DC in order to ensure the safety of all. We thank you for your patience and for your service.
