Day in Washington DC:
Does my husband/wife need a coat?
Badger Honor Flight provides each veteran and guardian with a light jacket that they get to keep. We suggest they dress in layers based upon the forecast.
Can I meet/surprise the veteran at the Reagan National airport in DC?
Yes, however you will not be able to get past security. Therefore you can meet the Veterans right outside TSA security in Terminal C.
Can I ride along on the bus? Can I follow the group around town?
BHF doesn’t allow ride alongs on our buses. You can meet us at the different stops. Please check the itinerary for the times.
Where is the best place to meet/surprise the vet during the day?
All of the stops are good places to meet the veteran. You may want to consider either the World War II or Korean Memorials depending upon their conflict.
How do I know where the group is from stop to stop?
BHF has someone who posts updates on our Facebook page.
My Veteran has asked me to be his Guardian because I live near DC–When/where do I get my Guardian training?
Please contact Alexis MacDonald and Niki Sollinger(see below) for information regarding Guardian Training
Who will take my Mail Call letters for the airplane? I missed the deadline to collect them.
Please contact Marnette Voeltz (608-692-2100) or Hazel Zimbric (608-320-1279) for information regarding how to get these to BHF so we may distribute them on the plane.

Yes you may bring signs. BHF also has a sign making area located between Door 3 and Door 4.

Unfortunately there is not a handicap area. However, those attending the event will find that folks will allow those requiring either a wheelchair or chair front row seating.
