Honor Flight

Tuesday, September 13, Dad was privileged to travel with many other veterans to Washington, D.C. for a whirlwind one day tour of our nation's capital.

 They started bright and early from the Springfield airport.

I know Dad greatly appreciated John volunteering to be the guardian on the trip.  I'm sure it was a memorable day for both of them.

John managed to capture this moment during the day.
Dad's shirt says 'All gave some, some gave all. Thank a veteran.'
Pictures ARE WORTH a thousand words.

Thank you, Dad, for your service to your country.

This was the program our family selected to send memorials made in Mom's memory.  She was so excited for Dad to take this trip.  No, she didn't get to enjoy the day with him, but because of her passion for this program and because of the love of so many for Mom, other veterans will be able to enjoy the same experience as Dad.  That would please Mom greatly.
