Flights and Welcome Home

What is a Welcome Home?
A Welcome Home is a reception for our Veterans at the airport.  A celebration of our soldiers returning home - in this case - one last time.  This can only be made possible by YOU and others in our community. The more people we have the better the reception to Welcome our Heroes Home. Most of them never received such a reception on their return home from war, so we aim to right that wrong. 

Our Mission

Our mission is simple. Honor Flight Houston, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, knows that our Veteran heroes aren’t asking for recognition. It is our position that they deserve it. Please help us continue to make their dream of visiting THEIR memorial, a reality.
