Some of our nation’s heroes will be taking a “trip of a lifetime” to Washington, D.C on September 6 – 7, 2019. It’s all part of Honor Flight San Antonio.
Honor Flight San Antonio is a non-profit organization whose mission is to take every willing and able hero to see their designated memorials in Washington, D.C.
We would like to send them off and welcome them home in style and are looking for volunteers to come out to the Airport for both events.
These events have been very successful in the past with volunteers showing up to send these heroes to Washington, D.C. and then to welcome them home.
The SAPD Pipe and Drums band will lead the Veterans procession to the checkpoint, and onto the departing gate.
If you would like to greet the veterans before they depart or attend the return ceremony at the San Antonio International Airport, here are the details:
Friday, September 6 – Veterans begin arriving in Terminal A at 5:00 am and their Southwest Flight #855 departs at 7:15 am.
Saturday, September 7 – Return United Airlines flight #511 will arrive at 8:50 pm and there will be a Welcome Home Reception in the upper level of Terminal B.
If you have any questions about this event, please contact either Lt. Curtis Walker, SAPD, or the undersigned.
