On November 14, we have an opportunity to honor our World War II veterans as they arrive to tour the World War II memorial and attend the Changing of the Guard at Arlington.
Both Trail Life and AHG troops are welcome to participate in this event.
Meet at Reagan National Airport at 8am, Saturday November 14th.
Our lead on this event is Jeffrey Phelan. If you are going to attend, please go to the sign up link as soon as possible. Each person must sign up or they will not be allowed to go to the gate. Below is the link to sign up.
More information from The Honor Flight Network:
The Honor Flight Network flies veterans from all over the country to visit THEIR memorials in Washington DC free of charge.
Our greatest need is greeters at the airport. Many of us assume that our veterans had a warm welcome when they arrived home and in most cases, that was just not true. Many veterans have told us that they didn’t receive ANY welcome home, and thought they were forgotten.
Our basic role is to meet, greet, and welcome with as much pomp and circumstance as we can muster. We decorate, play patriotic music, and thank them for their service. The more smiling faces in the crowd to let them know – WE HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN YOUR SACRIFICE – the better!
