As the granddaughter of a WWII vet, I thought it was only fitting to volunteer as an Honor Flight greeter for WWII vets at Dulles Airport. (They also fly into Reagan and BWI.) Honor flight “transports our heroes to Washington, D.C. to visit and reflect at their memorials. Top priority is given to the senior veterans – World War II survivors, along with those other veterans who may be terminally ill.” http://www.honorflight.org
As the weather will be changing soon, honor flight will be wrapping up 2009 flights this week. They will start again in the Spring. I plan on volunteering for as many of these as I can, as I believe I get as much out of it as our veterans do and I know my grandfather would be proud!
God Bless America, those that have served our country, and those that continue to serve our country!
