Many people have asked why their dad, brother, husband, or son’s name was not on our Honor Roll. It was not there because he was not a member of the Distinguished Flying Cross Society. You probably did not realize that the government did not keep a cumulative record of DFC recipients therefore no one knows how many were issued or to whom. Our organization was not founded until 1994 so we represent only a small fraction of recipients. We do have spouses or children of recipients making their loved ones members of the Society and this can be done. Once a person is made a member, his name will be proudly displayed in perpetuity on our website Honor Roll. Please read the Application and upon meeting the requirements regarding the Society your loved-one will be honored in perpetuity. If you need any further information just let us know.
