Get Ready…

Good morning fabulous Dulles volunteers!! Your faithful Dream Team is just waking up from a long winter’s nap and getting ready for our Spring season. 

In the next week we will be attending the Honor Flight Summit in Baltimore, MD to get the wheels rolling on our 2017 flights. The summit is held once a year before the beginning of the season to allow ALL of our hubs to get together with the ground crews (us, BWI, and DCA) to plan the trips for our veterans, finalize some details, coordinate the buses, meals, visits to the memorials, etc and so on. A LOT of planning and preparation  (and fundraising) goes into planning just ONE Honor Flight Mission. Can you imagine that times 45 states?? (If not, check back in a little over a week, I’ll be posting statistics.)

So start getting your yellow shirts out and brush up on your waving, handshakes, hugs and smiles, we’ll be back in a couple of weeks with more information. 

Oh- and for those of you REALLY early birds – 


Enjoy the winter while it’s here, Your Dream Team

  1. I have moved. I grew up in D.C., I’m a Vietnam Vet (1967/68). I now live in Port St Lucie Florida and am interested in helping…..


    • Hi Richard! Thank you for your service!! You can check the national website at and locate a hub that is close to you that you could volunteer with. But if you’re still not sure, please send me an email at and I’ll make sure you get connected. If you haven’t gone on YOUR Honor Flight, many hubs are accepting applications for our Vietnam veterans like yourself and it would truly be an honor for you to go with us! Please let me know if I can help further. Take care, Jennifer


  2. Thanks, will do. I have been to The Wall many times. I will check out the suggestion above. I’m more interested in helping others make the trip and or providing escort to Veterans that need help.

    I also Admin a Private Group of Vietnam Veterans and will post info for them on Flights. Many have never been and cannot afford to go… Thanks for what you all do….


    • You sound like so many of our veterans who are so very selfless, wanting others to attend before them. I will tell you, you all deserve for us to honor you this ONE time. I hope you will consider it. Also, please let your other Vietnam veterans know that this trip is FREE to them. The veterans do not pay one penny to go. It is the least we can do to honor them this time! We are ALWAYS looking for more veterans, so please help us spread the word. I’ll email you from our email address too. Thank you!! Jennifer
