Join us for Mission 12 Saturday, September 29!

Saturday, September 29, 80 veterans from World War II, Korean War, and the Vietnam War will join us for Mission 12. The itinerary for the day is below and you can follow our day on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/HonorFlightSyracuse. We will be posting updates all day from the memorials we visit. We will also be posting LIVE from our Welcome Home Ceremony that evening.

If you would like to join us at the Welcome Home, please read on for details:

Please arrive in time for the 6:40 pm arrival. Parking will be available in the Airport Garage at standard rates. Dress for the weather – the Veterans will parade from the terminal to a huge nearby tent for the Welcome Home Ceremony. The plane will land to a water-cannon salute outside the South Terminal. After parking in the garage, proceed to the Tent and you will be advised when the Veteran Parade will begin. Due to ongoing construction, all guests and attendees are asked to proceed directly to the tent, and not enter the terminal.

If you have questions, please message us on Facebook or email amydelia1@gmail.com.
