I would love to help. I’m in DC. My dad was in WWII.
Wonderful, Barb! We hope to see you at the airport sometime soon!
Do kids need to register as well?
Yes, children need a gate access pass but do not need an ID
My Dad was s WWII Veteran and I was a Military Brat that later also married a military man…, I am always interested in helping out our Heros
I am a retired Marine whose lives in Northern Virginia. A friend (also a retired Marine living in Northern Virginia) and I would like to volunteer as escorts while the Honor Flight honorees are in our area. Is there a way to do that?
We’d love to have you come greet our Veterans — you can find the schedule of flights on our website — honorflightdca.com/schedule!

As the daughter of a WW2 Marine, sister of an Army Paratrooper and wife of a Navy vet, it would be an honor to welcome our Heros home.

Very interested in volunteering! My father and Father-in-law were vets and my husband is still serving. signing up to start greeting!
My son is active duty Navy
My father(deceased)and father-in -law (living) were WWII vets. My husband and I would be honored to help in any way. We were pleasantly surprised to witness an arrival of a honor flight as we were traveling to our son’s change of command. Would feel previledged to participate.
Love to welcome my fellow vets as they see our tributes to them.
Would love to get information on buses out of VA to meet the veterans at the bus where they depart to head to DC. I believe I could get together some women motorcycle riders to greet them as they board.
I just participated in my first Honor Flight today by greeting my grandfather (a Korean War vet) and 186 other vets from Mid-Michigan at the gate, and tagged along for the rest of the day as he saw the memorials and Changing of the Guard at Arlington. My husband, also a veteran, and 8 year old son came along, too! It was a great experience.
I would love to do this again, and would also like to know if I could serve our veterans in any nursing capacity (I’m a Registered Nurse).
What a wonderful program!!!
I am the leader of a Troop of Girl Scouts, I am also the Service Unit Manager in charge of a group of around 40 troops. I’d like to set it up to bring our Service Unit to one of these days to meet the veterans. It would most likely be a lot of Gurl Scouts. Where can I get information to sign up a big group?
Hi Genie, we would welcome the Scouts! If you click under the navigation panel “volunteer”, you’ll see information about how to sign up a larger group.
Victoria, contact the Historic Triangle Virginia for volunteering locally. We’d love to have you and your crew!
