Don't have plans tomorrow morning? You do now!
What is Honor Flight, you ask?
Only one of my favorite organizations who host some of my favorite events around Washington, D.C. The Honor Flight Network flies veterans from 127 cities, free of charge, to visit their memorials in Washington D.C.
This is Honor Flight's motto:
How can you help?
Just show up!
One of the biggest honors you can do for the Veteran's who come to the WWII Memorial with Honor Flight is just come and thank them for their service. Having happy faces there to greet them is a wonderful way to give back.
And if you're in the D.C. area and are in town this weekend, you're in luck!
There are not one, but TWO flights coming in this Saturday. I've copied Saturday's intinerary below, but you can view the full schedule here.

Another way that I give back?
When I welcome the vets, I also take photos of them arriving and visiting the WWII Memorial. I then hand out my card so that they can contact me for the photos. Honor Flight DCA also shares my photos on their Facebook for the D.C. area or the local page for the group that travelled to D.C.
Below are a few of my favorites:
Hope to see you there tomorrow!
