Thank you for your interest in Honor Flight. We would LOVE to have you come join us at Dulles International Airport.
The Honor Flight Network flies veterans from hubs all over the country to visit THEIR memorials in Washington, D.C. and Virginia. There is no charge at all to the veterans for their Day of Honor in the Washington, D.C. area.
Our greatest need is to have greeters at the airport. Many of us assume that our veterans had a warm welcome when they arrived home from the battle front. That may have been the case for returning GIs from World War II. It certainly was not the case for Vietnam veterans. Many have told us that they didn’t receive ANY welcome home and thus thought that they have been forgotten and were not appreciated.
Our basic role is to meet, greet, and thank them with as much patriotic spirit as we can muster. We decorate, play patriotic music, and thank them for their service to our country. The more smiling faces in the crowd to let them know — WE HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN YOUR SACRIFICE — the better!
