  1. It was heart warming to see the reception that the vets got at DCA this morning. After these heroes had passed through the crowds I spoke to Andy Leighton, the volunteer musician at the ceremony. I just wanted to say that his beautiful musical tributes on his French Horn made the arrival of each vet even more special.

  2. I am wondering if there are any photos for the group that arrived in mid October from SFO. I am trying to put pictures together for 2 Veterans that went and would love ANY photos that can be shared

  3. Kim,

    Did they come into Reagan or Dulles? My husband and I take alot of photos – but we greet at Dulles.

    Susan Spaulding

  4. I RECENTLY FLEW ON HONOR FLIGFHT 10 NOV 7 2015. I CANT TELL YOU HOW MUCH I ENJOYED IT. IT WAS VERY ENLIGHTING, AND A DAY I WILL NEVER FORGET FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE. I WISH EVERY VETERAN WILL TAKE THIS FLIGHT. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR ONE OF THE BEST DAYS OF MY LIFE,

  5. I have attended many times before. My husband used to play in the Main Street Band from Fairfax city. So we would like to come to a flight where that band is playing so that Paul can join them. Jenny Ebert

  6. Does the October 22,2016 Honor Flight include Vets. from Mt. Carmel, Illinois at Evansville Ind.?

  7. Charles — We are not in charge of the roster for each flight, but in looking at the hub website , it seems like that hub serves the Indiana counties of Crawford, Daviess, Dubois, Gibson, Knox, Lawrence, Martin, Orange, Perry, Pike, Posey, Spencer, Vanderburgh and Warrick.

  8. Morning,
    I see on schedule flights through December 11th requesting Greeters at DCA for arrival, departure and Memorials. I am a DCA Guardian and love volunteering for Austin & Houston hubs. Do any of these one day listed flights utilize DCA Guardians? If so, appreciate being put on your request list. My name is Debbie Bolstad contact debbiebolstad@gmail.com. Love to help out if you need.

  9. Wow! I am so touched by all of this.
    What an amazing way to say thank you! I am going to see what I can do to get my 104 yr old WWII Dad on an “Honor Flight”. We are in the Los Angeles area, and I notice all flights coming from Ca. depart from SFO. He’s in good physical condition for his age.
    I want to thank you again for doing this. It touches my heart.

  10. In viewing the schedule I noticed no stops at the Vietnam memorial and yet such veterans are eligible for the flights. Confused.

  11. Terry — These are just some of the stops on the trip. Most hubs often stop at the Vietnam Wall and several other locations throughout the day, we don’t have the timing for those stops, though.
