The site’s goal is to goal is to showcase states that are working hard to create economic opportunities for veterans and military spouses and to highlight the resources available to those transitioning military families.
“I’m very happy that Ohio has joined this effort,” Ohio Department of Veteran Services Director Tim Gorrell said. “Increasing the visibility of our state through the All*Vet States site is another way we’re elevating Ohio’s status as a veteran-friendly state, one that all veterans can be proud to call home. Ohio has worked aggressively to be a top destination for our nation’s veterans and military spouses.

Honor Flight Dayton RV Trip Coordinator - Looking for Female WWII & Korea Veterans
Dian Holland, Honor Flight Dayton RV Trip Coordinator is looking for female WWII and Korean Veterans to travel for an upcoming trip in August of this year, leaving from Springfield, Ohio.
The trip involves a three day trip to Washington D.C. to visit the WWII, Korean and several other memorials by way of RV. The trip leaves on a Friday morning and the group returns on the following Sunday about 5:30 P.M. Veterans and guardians stay in a hotel Friday and Saturday night and travel into D.C. by deluxe motor coach. Stops include WWII, Korean, Viet Nam, Iwo Jima memorials and Arlington National Cemetery. If we have female veterans we stop at the Women's Memorial located inside the ANC grounds. The complete trip is at no cost to our veterans.
We take veterans from any location in Ohio or surrounding states if they can get to our departure point. There is one exception and that would be any veterans living in the Columbus area. We do have one motor home leaving from New Albany and can take four veterans from the Columbus area. We usually take 20 to 24 veterans and have 5 to 6 large motor homes traveling in the convoy.
The three day trip is an excellent venue for veteran couples or veteran friends who would like to travel together to see their memorial. Our RV drivers are experienced drivers and dedicated guardians who all make this a trip of a lifetime for our senior veteran heroes.
Eligibility dates for the honor flight trip for WWII veterans are 12-7-41 thru 12-31-46. For Korean veterans the dates are 6-27-50 thru 1-31-55. Even though we provide wheelchairs throughout the weekend, we do ask that veterans for this trip be fairly ambulatory i.e., able to get in and out of a motor home and bus several times throughout the weekend with some assistance and able to stay in a hotel for two nights with minimal assistance. We do have an RN traveling with us and guardians assist with general needs for the veterans.
We are looking for female veterans to fill these trips and I hope you will be able to assist us and those veterans who have not been able, for whatever reason, to travel to D.C. to visit their memorial.
Thank you for your time and hopefully, your assistance in locating female veterans for this trip.
