    Flight leaves from Brunswick Golden Isles airport

    Flight leaves from Brunswick Golden Isles airport

    The Coastal Georgia Honor Flight has been established to honor our community’s veterans for all of their sacrifices. Our mission is to fly heroes via private, chartered airliner, from Coastal Georgia (Camden, Glynn, McIntosh counties and others as space is available), to Washington, D.C. so that they may reflect at their national memorial. Priority is given to World War II veterans then Korean and Vietnam War survivors. Veterans who are terminally ill, from any conflict, get top priority. Our heroes will travel absolutely free.  Appropriate medical staff accompany each flight, so no veteran is turned away due to medical concerns if at all possible. 

     

    In 2017, our goal is “fill the flight” with 90 veterans getting the trip of a lifetime.  Our ability to take our heroes on this special trip depends entirely on the generosity of you and others in our community, both businesses and individuals. Please visit our web site to donate, volunteer or apply as a veteran to take the trip.  www.coastalgeorgiahonorflight.org.

     

    Sites visited during the one day trip include the World War II, Korean and Vietnam Memorials, the Lincoln Memorial, Arlington National Cemetery, including the famous Changing of the Guard Ceremony, the Marine Corps (Iwo Jima), Air Force and Navy Memorials as time permits.

     

    We are an affiliate of the national Honor Flight Network, which provides us with technical and travel support and helps arrange activities in Washington D.C.
