Our Impact 2017-07-05T13:42:36+00:00

It is a challenge to measure how many people Honor Flight Chicago impacts, but with post-flight interviews dating back to 2008, we can say with confidence the impact is multiplied by at least twenty-fold for each veteran who traveled with us.

Even years after their trip, veterans say their honor flight not only bolstered their self-esteem and pride in their service, but it was truly one of the most memorable days of their lives.

They are not the only ones to be impacted by our organization. Their family members, our volunteers, our Guardians and our generous donors each have personal stories of how their lives were changed by Honor Flight Chicago.

Don’t take our word for it: discover their stories below.
