JOIN Honor Flight Dayton on May 25th, 2019 to Welcome home our Veterans from their day in Washington DC
When: May 25th, before 8pm for gate pass, flight lands at 9pm (see more details below to get a gate pass)
Where: Dayton International Airport, American Airlines gate
Why: To say THANK YOU to our WWII, Korean and Vietnam Vets
To all our regular and prospective Honor Flight volunteers,
We are asking for volunteers to come to the airport when these flights return home to Dayton. We want to cheer for the Veterans, thank them and make sure that they know we appreciate what they did for our country. Many of them sacrificed portions of their lives and most did not get welcomed home when they returned from conflicts across the globe. We at HFD are grateful that you all might consider thanking these WWII, Korean and Vietnam Veterans in person when they return home from these trips. We want to give them the best possible surprise welcome home… one that many of these heroes never got when they served. Our purpose, as active/retired military, DoD civilians, friends, family and free people, is to make sure these Veterans know that we’ll never forget what they did for us, and that they never forget how we feel about them.
The second flight scheduled this year is Saturday, May 25th. The flight is a charter flight and scheduled for a Saturday 9:00pm arrival. But it’s important to note that in order to be in the gate area, you must acquire a gate pass from the American Airlines ticket counter and then process through TSA security all between 6:00-8:00pm. They may close promptly, even if people are in line. They are doing us a great service by staying open just for us, so please be early. Representatives and Honor Flight volunteers will be in the gate area with instructions, information and will be available for questions if there are any. Announcements in the gate area will be around 8:00pm. Ticket counter representative will indicate the flight arrival gate.
Dress is casual and patriotic and we ask Military to wear UOD.
