Space Coast Honor Flight
Space Coast Honor Flight's (SCHF) mission is to take World War II, Korean War, and Vietnam Veterans to visit their War Memorials in Washington D.C. This is a unique opportunity to show our gratitude to these Heroes who made it possible for us to enjoy the freedoms we have today.
Our trip's priorities are to ensure the safety and dignity of our Veterans! To enhance the experience each Veteran is paired with a Guardian escort and has a wheelchair available. This is a long day and there is a fair amount of walking. In addition, we travel with several staff members to include a medical doctor and videographer.
We have seven flights scheduled for our 2018 Season. Veterans are scheduled based on date of receipt of their application. You may also join the mission as a Guardian Escort, a Volunteer, or just help us locate Veterans!
SCHF Veteran scheduling is based on the following priorities and calls to schedule an actual trip will be made to Veterans in these categories based on the postmark/receipt date of the application:
1. Any Critically Ill Veteran
2. World War II Veterans (Service through 1948)
3. Korean War Veterans (Service 1949 to 1954)
4. Vietnam Veterans (Service 1955 to 1975)
5. Recent conflicts (Service 1976 to present)
In 2017, 40% of our Vets were WWII Vets, 48% were Korean War Vets, and 12% were Vietnam Vets. Most Korean War Vets had an application date of 2015 or earlier. Almost all Vietnam Vets had a medical issue which advanced them on the list.
We have several hundred applications on file and If you have a question about your place on the Veteran list, please send an email with your Name, Phone Number, & Specific Question to: firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message at our toll free number 1-888-750-2522. Our Veteran Coordinator will get back to you.
In addition, if your health dramatically changes and you believe you should be advanced on the list send an update to the same email address/phone number and we will get back to you immediately.
You can also help us by donating! Ninety seven cents (97%) of every dollar go toward taking our Vets to DC.
Space Coast Honor Flight Never Solicits by phone or door to door.
