Final Honor Flight of 2017

Calling all Packs, Troops, and Crews. The final 2017 Honor Flight is Saturday, 4 November! Dayton Honor Flight is so grateful for all your help in welcoming our Veterans home on both our three previous 2017 flights. This reception has become a trip highlight for our Veterans thanks to all of you that come to put an exclamation point on a day that means more to these heroes than you can possibly imagine. We are planning to take 100+ WWII, Korea and Vietnam Veterans on each of our charter flights. Previous Veterans tell us they’ll never forget the welcome home you’ve given them. It really caps off quite a day for these dedicated men and women. So Honor Flight Dayton once again asks for your consideration in being there to cheer and show your thanks to them as they deplane and head home with their families at the end of these trips. They deserved this long ago and never really got it. Wait until you see their faces when they see all of you there!

The flight is Saturday, 4 November and will arrive back at the Dayton Airport approximately 10:30pm. To be in the gate area to greet them when they deplane, you need to arrive earlier, get a gate pass from Sun Country Airlines and get through TSA before 8:30pm to be able to get thru security and assemble in the gate area and along to halls back to security. The Veterans tell us about their personal highlights of each trip, but they are amazed at the outpouring of support they get when they come home. Your help in showing them what heroes they are means the world to us at HFD.  Your participation means that our heroes know they are honored, know they are remembered and know that what they did to protect our home and way of life has not been forgotten and will live on in the memories of our children and our children's children. (PLEASE do not gather in the area immediately outside the TSA area. We ask that all volunteers assemble past the area where the Band of Flight members set up and away from the elbow in front of the main Airport doors. Our active duty military members will be forming up in that space and you will not be able to see the Veterans!)
