DynCorp International employees participated in Welcome Home a Hero Day at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) on Saturday, September 24.
Welcome Home a Hero Program
The Welcome Home a Hero Program was established to encourage and support deployed military members. Approximately 150 to 275 troops come through DFW airport every day on their way home for two weeks of rest and recuperation (R&R). A small portion of these troops meet their families at the airport in Texas, while the majority will catch connecting flights home.
Volunteers gather each day to be there to welcome these troops off their flight, thanking and encouraging them for their service to the U.S. The majority of those arriving are coming from Afghanistan and Iraq.
Volunteers typically arrive dressed in red, white and blue with signs of encouragement, balloons and American flags.
