What to expect:
Be flexible! Our Soldiers are coming home on contracted airlines. Those flight arrival times often change, based on weather, mechanical issues, or a variety of other issues. Flight time often changes. The ceremony times listed on this site may change at any time. Call your unit point of contact if you have questions or concerns.
Flights may also arrive early. You should plan to arrive at the ceremony site 2 hours before the projected ceremony time. If flights arrive early, the ceremonies will not be delayed to wait for the arrival of family members.
Volunteers will be on site with free beverages and snacks. If you or your children have specific dietary needs, you will need to bring those items with you.
There are seats inside the ceremony site, providing plenty of space to wait for the flight to arrive. Additionally, families will be allowed to go outside as the plane arrives and watch their Soldier deplane.
Members of the media are invited to each Welcome Home Ceremony. Feel free to talk to them if you wish.
After the Soldiers deplane, they will form up outside of the facility. Soldiers will then march into the facility for a brief (3-5 minute) ceremony. At the conclusion of the ceremony, the Soldiers and families will spend about 20 minutes together. Following that, Soldiers will go back into formation to board buses. While they are boarding buses to go to their unit to turn in weapons and other sensitive items, families will be briefed on reintegration issues, and then returned to their vehicles. Strip maps will be provided, showing the location of the unit area where the Soldier can be picked up once weapons turn-in is completed.
What not to bring:
Pets of any kind (certified guide dogs are the exception)
Balloons are permitted in the hangar, but they cannot be carried onto the flight line.
Thank you for joining us in welcoming home our Screaming Eagles.
