Kansas Honor Flight
The Kansas Honor Flight
The Kansas Honor Flight is an all-volunteer organization that works to honor Kansas veterans of World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War by providing them with an ALL-EXPENSE PAID, 3 DAYS and 2 NIGHTS in honor and remembrance to visit their memorials in Washington, D.C.
The organization also works to educate the youth and communities throughout Kansas about the impact of these historic wars and the freedoms our nation enjoys because of the service of our veterans. The KHF is part of the National Honor Flight Network, and is the #1 chapter of over 130 chapters, sending more veterans on flights than any other chapter nation-wide.

Who Can Go On A Kansas Honor Flight?
Any Kansas veteran of our armed forces who served during WWII, Korea, or Vietnam--regardless of whether they served overseas, on a combat tour, or state-side--qualifies to go on a Kansas Honor Flight. Even if the veteran did not enter military service in the state of Kansas, if they are CURRENTLY a Kansas resident (and have been for some time) they can still qualify to go.
However, ALL veterans must have served during the time periods indicated below:
December 7th, 1941 - December 31st, 1946 (World War II)
June 25th, 1950 - January 31st, 1955 (Korean War)
