Saturday, October 1st marks Honor Flight Syracuse’s Mission 08! We are looking forward to taking these veterans on their mission to visit their memorials in Washington, DC. Everyone is invited to our Welcome Home celebration for these heroes!
Please arrive at Syracuse Hancock International Airport by 6:00 p.m. Free parking as available will be in the overflow parking (turn LEFT at the light as you come onto the Airport grounds). Once filled, parking will be available in the pay lot and garage.
Weather pending, the plane will land to a water-cannon salute, visible from outside the South Terminal. Proceed inside and cheer for the procession of veterans, led by the Syracuse Scottish Pipe Band and SU ROTC, Civil Air Patrol and Naval Junior ROTC Color Guards. The brief Welcome Home Ceremony will feature the Tom Dooley Choraliers and remarks by Bill Smullen, Director of National Security Studies at the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University and former Chief of staff for Secretary of State Colin Powell.
We look forward to seeing you there!
