Puget Sound Honor Flight (PSHF) Welcome Home Celebration on Monday evening, May 11th, 2015 at SeaTac Airport and King 5 TV March 2015 PSHF trip

Ladies and Gentlemen,
I am a volunteer and guardian with the Puget Sound Honor Flight Network ( http://pugetsoundhonorflight.org) which at no cost to a WWII Veteran, provides a once in a lifetime opportunity for them to see their Memorials in Washington, DC and Virginia dedicated to their sacrifices.
The tour on Sunday and Monday, May 10th and 11th in Washington DC and Virginia is as follows.  We will take a deluxe coach with a motorcycle escort from Baltimore to Washington, DC and visit the WWII, Lincoln, Korean War, Vietnam War, FDR, Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force Memorials and the Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknowns and the Women in Military Service for America Memorial at Arlington National Cemetery ( http://pugetsoundhonorflight.org/honor-flight-trips/your-day-in-dc/).
There will be 56 WWII Veterans and 52 guardians departing from SeaTac airport at 8:20 am on Saturday, May 9th on Alaska Airlines Flight 768 on a Puget Sound Honor Flight to Baltimore Washington International (BWI) airport.   All 56 WWII Veterans and 52 guardians return to SeaTac on Monday, May 11th on Alaska Airlines flight 767 (from BWI) at 8:05 pm ( http://pugetsoundhonorflight.org/honor-flight-trips/upcoming-flights/.
You are welcome to join us and greet our WWII Veterans when we return to SeaTac on Monday, May 11th for a Welcome Home Celebration in the  Atrium area on the southend baggage level of the airport (near the shuttle bus departures area).  
You can see video of the April 2014 Puget Sound Honor Flight Trip on YouTube at  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wt16gIxGuXI.
Note:  Stuff happens & flights can be early or late.  So I’m listing the schedule as I know it today and arrival times can change.
During our March 2015 trip to  Washington, DC, we were fortunate enough to have shared the trip with Lindsay and Eric from KING5 TV .  They’ve been working hard at putting together stories highlighting our trip, and I’m happy to share with you some dates that these segments will be airing leading up to the Memorial Day Special.
