State Project 2018-19

State President Nathan Steiner

Remembering our Nation's Heros


Societies, Members & Friends can get involved by raising money to send a veteran to Washington D.C.,  Writing Mail-Call letters for the Servicemen and Women to read on the trip & attending a Welcome Home Celebration as they return from their trip.

Your donation helps to send WWII veterans to Washington D.C. to experience their memorial.

It costs approximately $1,000 to take one WWII veteran on an Honor Flight trip.   Veterans do not pay for this trip – we feel they have done quite enough. Every donation helps us achieve our goal of sending every single Western Washington WWII veteran on this trip.

Puget Sound Honor Flight is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  That means that your donation is tax-deductible.


In Honor of Our Veterans

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.

HONOR FLIGHTS MISSION : To transport our heroes on “One Last Mission” – a trip to Washington, D.C. to visit and reflect at the memorials built in their honor. This trip is free to the veteran, and made possible solely through individual donations and corporate support – NO Federal funds are allocated to this program. With the hard work and dedication of Honor Flight hubs throughout the U.S., and their communities, over 100,000 veterans have made this cathartic journey.

Since America felt it was important to build a memorial to honor the service and the ultimate sacrifice of her veterans, the Puget Sound Honor Flight believes it is equally important that they actually get to visit and experience their memorial.


Donations to support the project may be sent to: 

Washington State Society C.A.R., PO Box 112, Southworth WA  98386-0112
