VETERANS: Honor Flight – Top of Virginia (HFTOV) recognizes our World War II Veterans for their sacrifices and achievements by taking every World War II Veteran who has not visited the World War II Memorial (and is able to travel) on a charter bus day trip to Washington, DC. We are currently accepting applications from both WWII Veterans and terminally ill veterans from all wars. We will escort Korean War Veterans on a space-available basis to the Korean War Veterans Memorial during our trips, so we are also encouraging those Veterans to complete and send in an application.
Space is limited and applications are processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Please submit your application (see Veteran Form above) as early as possible. If you are unable to make the trip on the next scheduled date, you may request to be continued on the list for the next trip. There is ABSOLUTELY NO COST for the veterans; please consider this a small token of appreciation from all of us.
GUARDIANS: Honor Flight – Top of Virginia (HFTOV) cannot be successful without the efforts and support of our Guardians (see "Guardian Form" above). They play a critical role to ensure every Veteran has a safe and memorable experience. Duties include, but are not limited to, physically assisting the Veterans from the time of departure until their return. Guardians must be between the ages of 18-65 and in good health. Communications is exclusively by email, so Guardians must provide an email address that they monitor frequently.
Being a guardian is a great way for a family member to connect with a parent or grandparent and learn about a special time in the life of your loved one. A time which often has not been an easy conversation.
HFTOV cannot know how many guardians will be needed for any specific trip until all the applications from Veterans are in and we can begin matching Veterans to the most qualified guardians. You may check our website or email us at any time to determine the date of the next scheduled trip. Guardians selected to go on specific trips will be notified as soon as possible, but will usually be contacted approximately four weeks prior to the scheduled date.
