Honor Flight Patch Program
This 2″ iron-on embroidered patch is part of our patch program.
Honor Flights are conducted by non-profit organizations to transport United States military veterans to Washington, D.C. to see the memorials of the wars they fought in at no cost to the veterans.

Suggestions for how Daisy* and Brownie* Girls can earn the Honor Flight Patch:
Honor a Veteran
Most Honor Flights occur in the spring and fall. Find out when local veterans will be flying out and returning home. Contact the hub coordinator to find out what you can do. Often just the presence of a group of young people showing their respect is a appreciated. A sign thanking the Veterans for their service and displaying the flag will be welcomed.

Get Friends and Family Involved
Learn more about the Honor Flight Network. Make sure our veterans know they are not forgotten. Set a goal to get as many people involved as possible. Consider making a donation from your cookie money to help a local veteran.
Get the Community Involved
Use local social media to make sure everyone knows about Honor Flights. Contact your local community paper to ask them to write an article about one of the veterans. Learn to write a press release and submit photos after the event.
