Old Dominion Honor Flight Update

The Fall 2021 trip, Old Dominion Honor Flight (ODHF) Mission 2, has been suspended.

The continuing battle against the COVID-19 virus and the increasing threat of the Delta variant has led the Old Dominion Honor Flight (ODHF) Board of Directors to make the very tough decision to again suspend ODHF Mission 2 scheduled to travel on October 16th, 2021.  Another factor that led to this decision is the Korean War Veterans Memorial is currently being renovated so the statues are covered and a portion of the memorial is closed until Spring 2022.  As with earlier decisions, the health and safety of our Veterans is and will always be our biggest concern.  ODHF Mission 2 will now travel on April 23, 2022 so keep checking back for additional details.  Thank you for your understanding and continued support.

The Spring 2022 trip is now ODHF Mission 2. Mission launch location has yet to be determined.
