STARS AND STRIPES HONOR FLIGHT HOMECOMING GUIDELINES
There will be reserved areas at the parade rope lines for a maximum of 4 family members per flight veteran. Wristbands are required for the reserved areas, and will be available at the Family Registration desk, which will be located near the Airport’s Information Desk in the main terminal, beginning at 5:00 p.m. The rest of the family will need to find seating in other areas that are open to the general public. Recommended arrival time for general seating areas is about 6:00 p.m.
SSHF flights typically return at approximately 8:30 or 9 p.m. Please keep this in mind when making your plans for attending.
You may bring small folding chairs to sit on. No coolers, food or beverages are allowed for security reasons. Vendors are available in the parade area. You may not bring alcohol into the airport and no purchased alcohol is permitted outside of the Miller Brewhouse. No alcohol is permitted in the parade seating areas.
Keep in mind that we have limited space at the airport and large parties are difficult to accommodate. For unreserved general seating areas, please keep your group to less than 15 people.
There is no jumping the rope line into the parade route. To ensure the safety of all our veterans and bystanders, please greet your veteran at the rope line but do not cross into the parade route.
Please do your best to remain for the duration of the parade. If you must meet your veteran immediately after they pass through, please follow the instructions of our volunteers. If your veteran was the last off the plane you would want him/her to have the same experience as the first. Please be respectful of all our veterans.
Please respect our SSHF volunteers, Ambassador Team, Security Team, airport staff and Deputy Sheriffs. Security measures dictate that we abide by certain rules set forth by the airport. We are allowed the privilege to host these homecomings because of our cooperation with the airport and local law enforcement. Your cooperation is appreciated in following these directives and allowing us to continue to honor our local heroes in this way.
Please respect the family nature of a Stars and Stripes Honor Flight homecoming. It is our sincere wish that we pass along to the younger generation the respect that we have for our veterans and current members of our armed forces.
