Memorial Greetings

Join Us! All Are Welcome!

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.

  1. For WWII Memorial Volunteers. Some of your volunteer duties could be:

    -Greet the buses and then introduce yourself to the hub leader. Ask them if they need assistance with unloading the wheelchairs.

    -Show the veterans where the restrooms are (right there where the buses unload, look to the left and small bldg for men and women’s restroom, look to the right and you can see the tourist information bldg where the park rangers sit and where the WWII veteran’s database is located beside the front windows).

    -Ask the hub or bus leader if they need a temporary guardian at the WWII Memorial, some hubs pick up their metro area guardian at the WWII Memorial but the volunteer may be late so you can push the wheelchair veteran round until his/her guardian shows up.

    -Please watch the walking veterans, they get overconfident and then fall.

    -Assist the veterans with checking the database at the tourist center for their names.

    -Assist the veteran with having their pictures taken with or without their guardian.

    -Assist the veteran by using their camera to have their picture taken with Senators Bob and Elizabeth Dole, if applicable.

    -If the hubs have extra water bottles in their coolers, assist in ensuring the veterans have water during their time at the WWII Memorial.

    -Keep an eye out to ensure the veterans don’t wander away from the WWII Memorial. They all normally have same color t-shirts, or polo shirts or baseball caps showing where they are from. They will be wearing lanyards with their names and their hub name on it.

    -If they are eating at the WWII Memorial they normally eat on the Atlantic side of the WWII Memorial where there is shade, you can assist Ace who delivers the Arby’s lunchboxes to the veterans.

    – Walk around and talk to the veterans, they love to tell stories! If you are wearing your uniform, the WWII Veterans love posing for pictures with you!

    -Explain items of interest about the WWII Memorial.

    -Children are welcome and you can even bring your High School students who need to fill community service hours. Military members typically wear camo/utilities but appropriate civilian attire is acceptable as well. Feel free to come out for as little or as much time as you want! Thank you!

  2. I would be honored to volunteer with the honor flight at the WWII Memorial or The Vietnam Memorial….I live in Fredericksburg, Vrginia and would be driving up.

  3. I would love to be a greeter, especially the WWII Memorial or any of the Memorials. WWII is very special to me in many ways.
