What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Trips for WWII, Korean War, Vietnam War, and terminally ill veterans

Eligible veterans are taken to Washington, DC by one-day plane or overnight bus trips at no charge to see their war memorials and the Changing of the Guard at Arlington National Cemetery. The trips are all-inclusive, and are intended to honor our local veterans for their service to our country during times of war.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Twin Tiers Honor Flight is a non-profit charitable organization created solely to honor America's veterans for their sacrifices. As part of the national Honor Flight Network, we transport World War II, Korean, Vietnam era veterans to Washington, D.C. in honor of their service so that they can visit and reflect at their memorials. Top priority is given to senior veterans – World War II survivors, along with veterans who may be terminally ill.

We engage in community outreach activities to promote our mission including parades, tabling at veteran's events, informational talks to community-based organizations, and sponsoring an Adopt-A-Highway section of U.S. I-86. We engage many community partners including American Legions, VFWs, scouting groups, schools, and local media.

We are an all volunteer organization with no paid staff members, but have been successful in engaging community members in supporting our mission and have built a strong cadre of volunteers. To date we have run 8 missions and taken over 300 World War II, Korean and Vietnam era veterans to Washington DC in honor of their service to our country.

We have honored the service of over 300 World War II, Korean, and Vietnam era veterans by taking them on the "trip of a lifetime" at no cost, to see their memorials and the changing of the guard at Arlington National Cemetery. We have raised over $400,000 towards our mission and are proud of the fact that we have low administrative overhead due to the all volunteer nature of our board. Our current five year plan calls for us to make one flight and one bus trip a year and in 2018 it looks as though we will achieve it. From there, we may try to transition to multiple plane or bus trips. We have also expanded our area of coverage to include several additional counties in northern Pennsylvania
