Lake County Honor Flight

The mission of Lake County Honor Flight and the Honor Flight Network is to fly American’s Veterans to Washington DC to visit those memorials dedicated to honor their sacrifices. Top priority is given to America’s most senior veterans-survivors of WWII-followed by Korean & Vietnam Veterans and any veterans with a terminal illness who wish to visit their memorial.

Lake County Honor Flight transports America’s veterans to Washington, D.C. to visit the monuments and memorials dedicated to honor their service and sacrifices. Lake County Honor Flight works diligently to raise funds so that trips are available to veterans at no cost! We are recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501c3 non-profit. Your donation is tax-deductible. Lake County Honor Flight operates 100% on a volunteer basis.

Independence Fund

The Independence Fund’s mission is to support our injured and wounded veterans with the tools to achieve their independence and freedoms they have fought so hard to preserve.

Our mobility program allows disabled veterans the change to get back outside through a variety of devices including all terrain wheelchairs as well as adaptive bicycles. Many veterans that have been traumatically wounded are unable to enjoy the outdoors as they once had. Our all terrain wheelchairs are no match for sand, snow, gravel, and water!

The cost of one all terrain wheelchair is $16,000.

We wish the government could provide our Veterans with the rehabilitation equipment they really need – but that is not the reality. The Independence Fund, with your help, buys equipment which will provide Veterans with the utmost Independence – whatever it take to help our brace men and women come back to a normal and independent life.
