Mission Statement

We fly veterans to Washington DC to visit memorials built to honor their service to the nation.

Honor Flight Network

Honor Flight Network is a non-profit organization created solely to honor America’s veterans for all their sacrifices. We transport our heroes to Washington, D.C. to visit and reflect at their memorials. Top priority is given to the senior veterans – World War II survivors, along with those other veterans who may be terminally ill.

World War II Veterans

Of all of the wars in recent memory, it was World War II that truly threatened our very existence as a nation—and as a culturally diverse, free society. According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, an estimated 640 WWII veterans die each day. Our time to express our thanks to these brave men and women is running out.

First Flight

In October 2014, an Honor Flight to Washington D.C. departed from Evansville for the first time. That initial flight, which brought 3,000+ teary-eyed supporters to Evansville Regional Airport, was under the mentorship of Indy Honor Flight. The second Honor Flight out of Evansville was on May 30th, 2014 which was the first official flight for the Honor Flight of Southern Indiana hub.

Evansville’s Honor Flight Hub

“Clearly the community of Southern Indiana demonstrated back in October that we have the resources, energy and passion for our veterans to warrant having our own Honor Flight hub,” said Jerry Clewlow, Honor Flight of Southern Indiana Board President. “This is a tremendous honor and a testament to the hard work and support of a great number of individuals and organizations.”

Honor Flight of Southern Indiana will be the 133rd Honor Flight Network hub. It will serve the Indiana counties of Crawford, Daviess, Dubois, Gibson, Knox, Lawrence, Martin, Orange, Perry, Pike, Posey, Spencer, Vanderburgh and Warrick.

Honor Flight of Southern Indiana Day

Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke officially proclaimed May 30th, 2015 “Honor Flight of Southern Indiana Day” in the city of Evansville.

After the success of the inaugural Honor Flight out of Evansville in 2014, a strong committee of professionals, led by local residents Ashley Gregg and Jerry Clewlow, continued the push to bring an Honor Flight hub to Southern Indiana veterans and their families.
