Conceived by Earl Morse, a physician assistant and Retired Air Force Captain, the inaugural Honor Flight took place in May of 2005. Six small planes flew out of Springfield, Ohio, taking only twelve World War II Veterans on a visit to the memorial in Washington, DC. Later that year, after word got out, the list of veterans grew and Honor Flight transitioned from a few small private aircrafts to commercial airline carriers with the goal of accommodating as many veterans as possible.
Since then, Honor Flight has flown more than 200,000 veterans to Washington, DC from cities all over the country. Today, Honor Flight is a national network of 141 non-profit organizations (hubs) whose sole mission is to honor America's veterans for all the sacrifices they've made on behalf of our country.
