Honor Flight Tri-State seeking veterans to take a free trip to the memorials in Washington, D.C.

honor Flight Tri-State is a Cincinnati- based non-profit organization created to honor America's Veterans for their sacrifices. Honor Flight is dedicated to making a dream come true for these ordinary people who gave so much for their country.  

Honor Flight will fly World War ll and Korean Veterans on an all- expense paid trip to their memorials.

There are five planned trips for 2013. Those interested should visit  www.honorflighttristate.org and fill out an application in the veterans / guardian section or call the hotline 513-277-9626 and  an application will be sent to you.

Veterans may take a family member / guardian (other than a spouse ) on the trip. All guardians pay their own way ( $440).
