Welcome Home our Veterans and show your appreciation for their service to our country. Do not miss this moving and uplifting experience, when the Vets return home from their special trip. The smile on their faces will make it memorable evening.

Tuesday June 11, 2019 at 7:30 PM – 10 PM at St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport 14700 Terminal Blvd, Clearwater, Florida 33762.

In addition, to welcoming home our Heros, we will have the opportunity to welcome home two of our own as Guardians. Rough Rider David Will and Rough Rider spouse Beth Ferrentino have been selected to be Guardians on Mission 37 on May 7th. Come out and show your support.


With the growth of our area and the ongoing Gateway Express construction, our gracious host St Pete-Clearwater International Airport (PIE) had to make some changes in the parking for our Welcome Home Event. This little inconvenience pales to the sacrifice that these Veterans made for us. So please allow ample travel time and proceed with extra caution as you join us to honor our heroes.

1. FREE parking will be in Strawberry PIE Economy Parking Lot #2 ONLY. This lot is located on Fairchild Dr just west of and on the same side as the Terminal. There will be continuous airport shuttle service from 6-11pm as well as 2 Jolley Trolleys from 7-10pm between this lot and the terminal. You will enter the airport at traffic light Terminal Blvd, continue past the terminal and then follow the signs to Economy Parking Lot #2 Strawberry turning right onto Fairchild Dr. We will have HF volunteers with signs directing you to this lot.

If you are unable to attend please show your support via Mail Call:

The Honor Flight mailbox needs to be filled again. Please help fill it up with thank you cards, letters and notes for the Veterans.

Mail call is an important part of each Honor Flight Mission. It’s so easy to let our heroes know you appreciate them and all they have done for our country. Show your love and gratitude by helping fill up the mail call supply.

Deadline is 2 weeks prior to each flight.

Spread the word to your family and friends, schools, civic and church groups etc. Each Mission will include 75-80 Veterans, so that’s lots and lots of mail.
