"Honoring Veterans through Action"

Salute A Vet is an organization that honors veterans through actionable deeds.   Many individuals like to say "Thank You for your service" to our veterans.   We are chartered to honor veterans for their service by providing events and activities that  give honor  to our veterans publically.   In addition, we have member fundraising events that generate donations that we use to help veterans in need.

Below are some of our event activities that we produce to honor our veterans:

  • Airplane and Race Car Rides
  • Recognition at Airshows throughout North America
  • Corporate hosted events
  • Assist veterans in need through our fundraising event programs
  • Supporting our Veterans with a partnership with the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW)



Our current primary mission is to "Educate the public about what Salute A Vet is all about".

We accomplish this through attendance at Airshows throughout North America.  Our Executive Director - Jon Melby is an expert Airshow Pilot with over 15 years as an airshow performer.

We would like to have you join us in this mission.
