We are an all volunteer, local community group whose mission is to provide our remaining veterans the chance to personally visit the Memorials that were built to recognize their sacrifice to our Nation.
Only a fraction of our “Humble Heroes” ever get to visit the memorials in Washington DC. The veterans who fought the Korean War (the “Forgotton War”) or the Vietnam Vets who’s treatment today must touch our souls, we will not forget you. Currently our priority and focus is the dwindling group of World Ward II Veterans.
We believe every veteran is entitled to this trip of Honor. The right to a “thank you and welcome home” most have not yet received.
Veterans are Always in Our Hearts
We are Forever Grateful
You are Never Forgotten
The History of Patriot Flight, Inc.
Patriot Flight Inc. was established in the Capital District Region in 2007 by Bill Peak, a World War II Veteran, as a local chapter of the National Honor Flight Network. As part of the National Honor Flight Network, Patriot Flight Inc. flies World War II Veterans (and Korean Veterans) at no cost to the Veteran, on a day trip from Albany, NY to Washington D.C., where they are taken to visit the World War II Memorial and Korean War Memorial built in their honor, and when time permits, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington Cemetery and other memorials such as Iwo Jima, Vietnam, Airforce, etc. Patriot Flight Inc. services a seven county area in and around Albany, NY (including Albany, Rensselaer, Schenectady, Saratoga, Greene, Washington, and Columbia Counties) as well as parts of Vermont and Massachusetts. The Veterans are flown back to Albany, NY the same day, where they receive a warm welcome home from the community. Read More about our History.
