Honor Flight Welcome
Event Start Date: 6/10/2017 7:15 AM
Honor Flight, Saturday, June 10th, BWI Airport, 7:15 a.m. – 11 a.m.

Join other Honor Flight volunteers in greeting men and women veterans from WWII, Korea and Vietnam. This will be the only opportunity for many of these veterans to see the memorial that was constructed in their honor. This is a great an opportunity to thank these vets, face-to-face, for all they’ve given to our country and to listen to their stories. All ages are encouraged to participate in welcoming the veterans to Baltimore.

Everyone must have a Gate Access Pass (GAP) and a picture ID in order to get to though the TSA Security checkpoint and gain access to the arriving gates. To obtain a Gate Access Pass, requests must be submitted several days in advance. Contact Jean McArdle ( by Tuesday, June 6th, to sign up. Requests received after this date will not be processed in time for a GAP to be issued.

The requested format for submission is:

first name, middle initial, last name, date of birth, (mm/dd/yy format) and gender.

e.g. John D. Smith, 03/16/99, male

When the passes have been generated, I will email a confirmation. If you do not get a confirmation by 5 p.m. on Thursday, please email me. If you are unable to arrive for the first flight of the day, please indicate which flight you will be greeting. Or I will assume the first flight of the day.

Please note that everyone, babes in arms included, needs a GAP. Picture ID is not required for those under the age of 18 and children under 12 do not have to remove their shoes. Also, volunteers 75 and older can leave their shoes and a light jacket on. If the shoes set off the alarm, you will be asked to take them off and go through the screening again.

Parking in the BWI hourly garage will be free. Bring in your parking ticket for validation, along with a government issued picture ID, to the HF check-in point at the American Airlines departure level, near door 7. Please arrive 45 minutes before the flight you have selected on your gate pass request. Validation of parking tickets will be available after all flights are in.

Honor Flight Volunteer Coordinators will be in bright yellow shirts. The HF coordinator will validate the parking tickets, issue Gate Passes and inform you at which gates the flights are scheduled to arrive. They will also direct volunteers to the area needing the most assistance.
