Oklahoma Honor Flights Mission
Oklahoma Honor Flights transports Oklahoma World War II veterans to Washington D.C. to visit those memorials dedicated to honor their service and sacrifice.

Watch the “Flight of a Lifetime” – KOCO “Believe in Oklahoma special,” aired 12/29/2012.

News ReleaseAction taken at the June 22, 2015 Board of Directors meeting set November 19, 2015 as a deadline for Oklahoma Honor Flights to accept veteran applications.
The Board made its decision on the fact that unless someone acted on their behalf the World War II veterans would never see their memorial because it was built more than six decades after their service.

Oklahoma veterans may contact O and A Honor Flights at OAhonorflights.org for future flights they have scheduled.  Contact Beath Marsh at 918.964.0439.

2016 Schedule
Flight #24, April 4-5, 2016, was the final flight for Oklahoma Honor Flights.  It was a commercial flight with Southwest Airlines and took 23 veterans.  Beginning with the first flight in May of 2010, OHF honored a total of 2,055 Oklahoma veterans with a flight to Washington, D.C. to view the memorials built to recognize their service to our nation.

You can still be a part of the Oklahoma Honor Flights team.
The final stage of OHF is to preserve the way Oklahoma responded to the opportunity to recognize and honor the World War II generation before they were no longer with us.  All contributions are now dedicated to telling this Oklahoma story.

In Memory:
It is with great shock and sadness that Oklahoma Honor Flights acknowledges the sudden passing of Lynn Schmuhl.  Lynn was a member of the OHF Board of Directors.  She provided leadership for the Tulsa volunteer committee that made arrangements for the send-off ceremonies and  homecoming events for the eight OHF flights out of Tulsa.  A memorial service was held on Monday, February 29, 2016 at the Redeemer Covenant Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
