We honor America’s military service personnel for their dedication, hard work, and sacrifices.

Welcoming Our Heroes

Savannah Salutes, Inc. is a non-profit organization created to recognize the efforts and sacrifices of America’s Military Service Personnel.

The Savannah Salutes Lounge is a welcome center for our traveling military, including active duty, reserve or retired members of the US Armed Forces, veterans, and their families. It is located on Level 2 of Savannah/Hilton Head International; in Savannah Square, and outside of the security screening area.

This welcome center has comfortable seating, reading materials, television, internet access, and some concessions. It’s open 7 days a week, from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m, when there is a volunteer on duty. The lounge will be secured when there are no volunteers.

This facility is entirely administered and run by volunteers. It depends on donations to purchase snacks, drinks, and other amenities. It is not affiliated with the USO.


To utilize the lounge, identification is required to prove eligibility. Suitable identification includes a Department of Defense or Department of Veterans Affairs Identification Card. For veterans, having Veteran status on a state-issued Driver’s License is also acceptable.

Savannah Salutes, Inc. depends on volunteers to staff its lounge. There are normally two volunteers on duty during the hours of operation – 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., 7 days a week.

There are three shifts per day:

Shift 1

9:00 am – 1:00 pm

Shift 2

1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Shift 3

5:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Anyone interested in volunteering should submit an application here. Upon receipt, each volunteer will be sent a summary of volunteer responsibilities and the lounge SOP, plus a temporary passcode to access the volunteer scheduling app, VicNet.

All volunteers are required to use VicNet to schedule and track their volunteer hours. VicNet is a free app available for iPhone and Android phones. Every new volunteer must shadow an experienced volunteer before they are allowed to schedule their own shifts.
