Volunteers are always welcome and free at their own initiative to greet and welcome veterans directly at the Memorials! Veterans arrive not just from Reagan Airport, but from BWI, IAD, the local area, and on their own.
Volunteering at the World War II, Korean, or Vietnam Memorial:
There are volunteers who greet veterans directly at the Memorials. To do so, there is no need to rsvp to us. Just show up. If we know the times the Veterans will be at the WWII Memorial, we list it on the schedule.
Some Saturdays are deemed “Super Saturdays” as up to 10-15 different hubs are all in town! Greeters come to the WWII and can spend as much time as desired greeting flights as they arrive and unload. This is a great experience and well suited for large groups.
There is free parking near the Memorials on Ohio Drive, in the Tidal Basin parking lot (near the paddleboats), and around the National Mall. Please note that many of these free spaces are only for two to three hours. If you park on a DC street, you must pay for parking with a meter or an electronic meter.
Additionally, you will quite likely meet other Honor Flight veterans who have arrived via BWI or IAD, or who are visiting their Memorials on bus trips. It is an awesome time.
The following schedule lists Honor Flight missions arriving at BWI, DCA, and IAD and bus trips for 60 days from the first mission listed. The memorial arrival and departure times are provided by the sponsoring Honor Flight Hub on the National Honor Flight Schedule. In cases where the Hub has not provided their memorial schedule, the arrival and departure times will be blank. Actual times may vary due to local traffic, airline delays or other bumps in the road of life. We currently do not have a method of providing real-time updates. We appreciate your understanding.
