Please come and show your support to the WW2 and Korean War Vets returning on the Honor Flight from visiting Washington DC on Tuesday, April 22, 2014.

The vets will arrive at the north ramp of GSP near the FedEx area (Customs Building). Hwy 101 and Gateway Rd around 7AM. You can come and wish them off and meet some of them if you like. The plane should depart at 9AM.

The vets will visit:
  • WWII Memorial
  • Korean War Memorial
  • Lincoln Memorial
  • Iwo Jima Memorial
  • Arlington - Tomb of Unkown Soldier

They should arrive back at GSP around 8:15PM to a hero's welcome. I believe there are about 70 vets in all, half WWII and Korean. (This is the first time for Korean Vets aka "The Forgotten War")

Bring flags, banners. It will take a little bit of time to debark every vet. So please stay until all vets get the welcome home they deserve.

Thanks and God Bless.
