Honor Flight Dayton RVC Program

Our next trip will be April 21-23, 2017

The Honor Flight RVC (Recreational Vehicle Convoy) is an alternate method of traveling to Washington, D.C. for those WWII, Korean or Vietnam veterans who choose not to fly.

The convoy leaves on a Friday around 7:30 am, following a breakfast hosted by Springfield VFW Post 8673. The three day trip consists of two travel days and one day to tour the memorials in D.C.  Two nights will be spent in a hotel just outside Washington, D.C. Guardians and medical personnel travel with the convoy. Sites visited include the WWII, Korean, Vietnam, and Marines memorials. In addition, stops are made at Arlington National Cemetery and the Women in Military Service to America. The convoy returns to the same Post on Sunday at approximately 5:30 PM to a welcome home reception.

The trip includes transportation, meals and a t-shirt at no cost to eligible veterans.   It is important that any participant be ambulatory (not wheelchair bound) and able to climb into a motor home and tour bus several times during the trip. In addition, participants must be able to stay in a hotel and take care of all personal needs with minimal assistance.
