    Honor Flight Welcome Home - Orlando, Florida - 19 Aug 2017

    Honor Flight Welcome Home



    Orlando, Florida - 19 Aug 2017



    ABOUT THE MISSION:

    Patriot Guard Riders have the honor of standing a Flag Line and welcome home our Heroes of the Greatest Generation from their trip back from Washington D.C., after visiting the WWII, Korean,& Vietnam Memorials, Marine Corps Iwo Jima, Air Force Monuments and Vietnam Wall and witnessing changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery.

    This flight will have several WWII, Korean & Vietnam War Veterans with their escorts and medical staff. Many of us have personally had the honor to be there on several occasions and I can tell you it is a heartwarming experience. I encourage everyone to come out to the Orlando International Airport to welcome these former warriors home.

    Fast Park and Relax is offering free parking and free shuttle service for those who greet the Honor Flights at the Orlando Int'l Airport.

    Briefing will take place at staging area in the building next to the ticket booths as you enter. After the briefing, we will ride a shuttle bus to Terminal A and greet these Great Warriors.

    Bring your flags, banners and signs to help welcome our humble WWII, Korean & Vietnam War Heroes as they return from Washington DC.

    A grateful nation thanks you for your service and sacrifices you have made for our country. Welcome home.
    We fought a revolution. We won the revolution. We wrote the Constitution.
    The constitution doesn’t grant power, it keeps the government off our backs.
