Reveille and retreat infographic

Reveille and retreat – One of the military’s oldest and most-solemn traditions is to honor the American flag. Reveille is played every weekday on Wright-Patterson Air Force Base at 7:30 a.m. to signify start of the duty day. At 5 p.m., retreat is played – followed by the national anthem – as the duty day comes to an end. Next time you hear them, think before dashing to your vehicle or running back into the building.

We’d love to have you (and your organization) at the airport to welcome them home. The flight will arrive around 9:15 p.m.

There are two options to welcome them home at Dayton International Airport. First, you can get a gate pass from American Airlines (recommend no later than 8:15 p.m.), go through security and be at the gate when the veterans get off the airplane. With this option, you will need to stay at the gate until all are off the plane and they have walked out to the front of the airport. The second option is to meet them by the ticket counter. Many people will be out there – to include bands, JROTC units, Boy and Girl scouts, Civil Air Patrol and other groups. This is a great event and organizers would love to have a large crowd welcoming our veterans home. If you are military, especially if coming to the gate, wear your uniform—the veterans love to see that.
