Today’s Your Last Chance to Welcome Home the Troops at DFW Airport

Welcome-Home-HeroesLast April we compiled a list of the Things Every Dallasite Must Do.  Among those was greeting our military troops at DFW Airport.

Channel 8 reports that this morning may be your last chance to check this item off your personal must-do list. The Army’s program to welcome home those returning for R&R is being moved to Atlanta.  In fact, the last flight scheduled at DFW that’s part of this program will land by 10:30 a.m. today.

So if you race over there right now, you might be able to wave hello to a soldier. Otherwise, to complete our list you may just have to wander DFW terminals all by yourself, hoping to happen upon someone getting off a flight while wearing fatigues.

  1. My brother is career military. He has always said DFW was one of the best airports to fly into because of the reception he and the other military members received. He couldn’t believe people would even clap for them. Thank you DFW residents for making my brother and his comrades feel so appreciated.

  2. I had the priviledge and honor of being at DFW today when they arrived. Our plane was right next to theirs. I actually got to walk in to Customs with them and had a chance to briefly speak to a couple of them. That was one of the most humbling experiences I have ever had. Thank you for all those that have served this great country.

  3. I passed through Love Field many times back in the Sixties, and I was never greeted or applauded and I am glad of it. A bunch of warmongers trying to feel better by saying “Thank you” to me would have pithed me off.
