Please be cautious when using a company-sponsored email address to receive information from Honor Flight at Dulles. The Spring 2023 Signup notification that went out this morning saw several unsubscribes from business emails including a bunch from one company site. Some business systems automatically filter incoming emails to avoid spam. Getting multiple emails to company employees from one sending address might trigger this unsubscribe action as a spam blocker. Please consider a personal email address when communicating with us.
Spring 2023 Signups are Ready
It’s time! Time to start signing up to greet our veterans coming for their Day of Honor in Washington, D.C. The signups went live this morning and there are lots to choose from. So click the link above and get busy, signing up! We will see you at Dulles Airport real soon!
Parking for any Honor Flight at Dulles
Parking at Dulles Airport will continue to be free in 2023!!
If you have signed up to greet the arrival or the departure of the veterans on any Flight this spring, you will receive a note from email@example.com with instructions between 48 and 24 hours before the event.
THE IMPORTANT PART OF THIS MESSAGE — BEFORE YOU LEAVE HOME, YOU WILL HAVE TO PRINT OUT A PLACARD TO PLACE ON YOUR CAR DASHBOARD. The lot where we will be parking — for free — is patrolled by the airport police. WITHOUT A PLACARD ON YOUR DASHBOARD, you risk getting ticketed or towed.
A map with directions will be included in that email.
Spring 2023 Update
The Honor Flight Summit meeting has been held when many of the hubs from across the country came to BWI Airport to share and learn from each other. It was a time to touch base with some of the folks who will be flying into Dulles this year. The Honor Flight at Dulles team attended and we had a chance to have one-on-one meetings with both the new Chief of Staff for the Honor Flight national team and with their IT person.
In the next week or so, we will be posting our flight schedule for the spring. All the signups are ready to go for the 11 flights that we know will be arriving. There are still several items to be finalized and once they are, you will be notified. The validation of email addresses has started. Look for a message from “iadcoordinator.com” and PLEASE respond if you would like to be removed. We have over 1500 folks in our email list and it would be nice to remove folks who are no longer in the area or who are unable to volunteer this year.
NEW EMAIL SYSTEM
The National Honor Flight Network has come to our aid with a new email system. It will shrink our current sending time from 5 days to instantaneous. Thanks National!!
You will now see messages coming to you from a new email address …
Please make sure that this new address is not blocked or listed as junk mail by your email tools. Thanks
It has come to our attention that some of the Honor Flight hubs have had problems with people posing as members of the hub soliciting funds which never get to the hub. This is yet another form of scamming. Please be aware that no one from the Honor Flight of Dulles team ever solicits funds for our operation. We are not a 501.c.3 non-profit organization and, as such, cannot solicit funds. If any person calls or emails you requesting funds, DO NOT GIVE! If you have any information about the requestor, contact your local police department as well as letting us know.
