In 2013, Snap-on began a partnership with Honor Flight Network and became the first company to sponsor Honor Flight trips for its own people on a national level. The Snap-on/Honor Flight Program sends eligible Snap-on associates, retirees, franchisees and retired franchisees from across the country to visit their memorials in Washington D. C. In 2016, Snap-on announced an extension of the program, opening it up to WWII and Korean War veterans who are immediate family members of Snap-on current associates, retirees and current franchisees. Through the Honor Flight Network, Snap-on has discovered incredible stories and has shared those stories through videos, posters and annual veteran events. The experience has reconnected fellow veterans and old friends while helping to fulfill the Honor Flight mission. As of October 2017, Snap-on has sent 263 veterans and their guardians, a total of 526 participants, on eleven tours.
