Aug 15, 2018 | Member News

Honor Flight of Northern Colorado would like to invite all community members to help send off veterans for the final flight on the morning of Sunday, Sept. 9. Participants will line the highways and overpasses as the motorcade of law enforcement personnel and the Patriot Guard lead the procession of veterans from the Embassy Suites in Loveland to Denver International Airport.

The Honor Flight of Northern Colorado was established in 2008 as nonprofit organization that gives U.S. military veterans the opportunity to travel to Washington D.C. to visit the World War II Memorial. Since September 2008, Honor Flight of Northern Colorado has executed two flights per year with approximately 123 veterans and 60 guardians per flight.

The trip includes visits to the World War II Memorial, a drive through Arlington Cemetery and Tomb of the Unknowns, the U.S. Air Force Memorial, the Iwo Jima Memorial, the Korean War Veterans Memorial and the Vietnam War Veterans Memorial. All funds for the flight are raised through tax deductible donations.

The flight in September will be the final flight hosted by Honor Flight of Northern Colorado, and the organization is asking community members of all ages and demographics to help make this an extra special occasion by being a part of the procession. Those interested in being a part of the send-off are asked to arrive at the Embassy Suites in Loveland by 7 a.m. on Sept. 9. Please visit for further information.
