Honor Flights recognize American Veterans for their sacrifices and achievements by flying them to Washington, DC to see their memorials at no cost. Brushy Creek Area Honor Flight is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based out of Fort Dodge that arranges Honor Flights for eligible Veterans in Iowa. The all-day trip provides an incredible experience, and Veterans are encouraged to apply. Handicap assistance is available.
