Make SURE your Rear-D and FRG has your correct contact information
, in case flight times change.**
..it might be a wait if flights get delayed (better to be safe with weather and mechanicalissues than to be sorry!).**
DRESS IN LAYERS!
It's always 10* colder on the airfield...plus wind!!!**
You will ride the buses to the hanger
...large strollers will NOT fit on the buses and the buses are NOThandicap accessible. Those that cannot ride the bus (because of the afore mentionedreasons...STROLLER ISSUES ARE AS DETERMINED BY COMMAND...) must speak with Rear-D to obtain aparking pass for the hanger lot.**
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE RIGHT FLIGHT!
Units (company sized) may not fly together due to space,so make sure that you write the flight number down! Also, check the manifest when you arrive at thehanger. There will be Soldiers available on RSB to assist you with this.**M
ake sure to arrive EARLY
(normally buses will start transporting Family members 2 hours out from'wheels down', which is the time listed on the website, if there is no other ceremony happening. If thereis a ceremony immediately prior, they will begin transporting as soon as possible). Do NOT wait untilthat last 20 minutes before the plane is scheduled to land (wheels down). If the plane is early, they WILLNOT delay deplaning and the ceremony to wait for Families (this is also why you need to make sure thatyour contact information is 100% accurate!)Here's some other great reminders about homecoming ceremonies from Fort Campbell:
