The discussion will cover how the DCA Honor Flight organization works and the unique characteristics and expectations that might be encountered as a volunteer tour guide for Honor Flights. 

Our speaker, Lauren Burycka, is the Honor Flight Tour Guide Coordinator for the volunteer tour guide flights that fly into Reagan National. Guides who attend her orientation and fulfill the training requirements will be placed on her email list to receive announcements of upcoming flight arrivals. Volunteer guides reply to her and are assigned on a first come first serve basis. Most flights have multiple motor coaches, requiring several guides. Although the number of WWII veterans has lessened with the passage of time, the number of Honor Flights has increased each year with the addition of Korean War and Vietnam War veterans. Guiding an Honor Flight is interesting and incredibly inspiring. If you do it once, you'll be hooked!

The training session is FREE to Guild members. Attendees will earn one Continuing Education Credit (CEU).

This is an information and orientation session. Your attendance does not obligate you to become a volunteer. To qualify for selection as a volunteer you are required to participate in a ride-along motorcoach tour as a "shadow guide" or observer, no exceptions.

Nearest Metro: Washington Reagan National Airport

Registrants will receive directions and a map for locating the Conference Room one week before the event.
