We will be greeting the Veterans arriving on a flight at 4:10pm on June 8th. We will meet the flight at the gate and smile, clap, shake hands, and give hugs to the Veterans.

Everyone is welcome to join us with the SAME DC group. Be sure to invite your family members, friends, and co-workers! Great event for kids of all ages!

There is a specific registration process in order to gain access to the gate, so please RSVP by June 2. We will share further logistics and requirements to those who are interested. For more info: Honor Flights DCA
