Today my 86 year-old father-in-law is taking part in one of the finest traditions we as a nation have implemented and supported, The Honor Flight. Each Honor Flight is a plane laden with WWII veterans headed to the District of Columbia to check out the memorials that were dedicated for their service to our country. Many of these vets have never seen these memorials. I know my father-in-law was looking forward to this day with great eagerness.
These are guys, like you and me, who had to stand and defend our nation and others against tyranny, and in my mind are heroes to a man (and woman). We all know the story.
God Bless America and those who served her.
