Details
  • Beginning on or about February 21, construction crews will build a protective walkway in the pedestrian bridges connecting Terminal B/C and the Metro station.
  • The center walkway within the pedestrian bridges will be closed.
  • Moving walkways on the bridges will be turned off, and pedestrians will be routed through narrower paths to enter and exit the terminal.
  • To keep people moving within the narrowed space, signs will direct traffic flow.
Project Benefits

Mail request for 100th birthday

World War II Veteran Turns 100 on May 12th

Sherwood OR 97140

After Pearl Harbor and the declaration of war, David enlisted in the U.S. Navy Aviation Program and was sent for training in New Orleans. Due to depth perception problems, he transferred to the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy (USMMA). He sailed on the TEXAS SUN as a cadet/midshipman during the war.
In 1944, he graduated from the USMMA and was assigned to the USNS GEORGE W. GOETHALS (T-AP-182) which carried troops in support of preparation for the Normandy invasion. He also was stationed at Allied Forces Headquarters in Caserta, Italy. Following the war, Dave returned to Kings Point as a USMMA instructor.

NEW Memorial Schedule list

An additional feature we are proud to present in an ongoing list of all Memorial greeting opportunities. While this website’s purpose is to share DCA arrivals and schedules, many hubs fly in and out of neighboring airports (BWI and IAD). In order to best serve our veterans and recruit the most volunteers, we’ve added a special link to the Memorial page which will list out all Honor Flight scheduled visits to WWII, Korea, and Vietnam. This includes DCA, BWI, and IAD arriving hubs. This report will be produced weekly and cover the following 14 calendar days.

Click here to be redirected to the Memorial Greetings page to see all the Honor Flight memorial schedules based on date and memorial. 

As always, this information is subject to change and modification without notice. Airline delays, downtown activities, and a constantly evolving schedules mean our hubs (and volunteers) must be flexible. We hope you find this report valuable and another opportunity to greet all our veterans in downtown DC!
