2018 Honor Flight: A Look Through a Bus Captains Eyes

October 12 Friday

Pre-Flight meeting, training, and meal at Slaton airport. I went through the guardian training again to meet some of the people ahead of time. I try to help and watch for any problems.

Being a bus captain this time made me anxious. While being familiar with most of what happens, I would be involved in some details that I had not been aware of. I handled the registration desk for my (yellow) bus so I got to meet and greet 1/3 of the veterans and guardians personally. Some pretty long lines but overall everything went smoothly and we had supper catered by Aspen Creek. Spent the night at Arvil’s and sleep was hard to come by with all the gears turning and knowing it was an early start the next day.
