Washington, DC to Houston, TX, DC


Contact Information
Bailey McCracken '18

On a returning flight from Washington, D.C. (DCA) to Houston, Texas (Hobby Airport) any Aggies on Southwest Airlines flight no. 1655 will participate in a Muster ceremony in flight. This flight is special because veterans, including two Aggies who served in both WWII and Korea, will be in attendance on the Honor Flight Houston program. As its website states:

"The Honor Flight Houston mission is to transport, with a specific priority given to WWII Veterans in the East Texas Region and Korean and Viet Nam War Veterans residing in the greater Houston area to Washington, D.C. to visit those memorials dedicated to honor their service and sacrifices and return them home to their families and loved ones."

Included in this Muster will be Bailey McCracken '18, liaison for The Association of Former Students; Ashley French '06, Chairwoman of Honor Flight Houston; WWII and Korea Veterans Leland W. Kiker '50 and Robert A. "Bob" Epstein '44 (Bob was present at the 1946 Corregidor Muster); and any Aggies who are guardians (volunteers paired with a veteran to take them through memorials), flight crew, or passengers.

A roll call is being prepared as well as programs to inform all flight passengers of the Aggie Muster tradition.
