Honor Flight

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.

  1. It certainly does cheapen it. Remember when Kellen Winslow Jr. went on his rant about being “A Soldier”? That’s the first thing I thought of when reading your reply. Happy Game Seven tonight!

  2. and when announcers call a hockey game a war and it’s players warriors, it cheapens the effort of his generation even further.

  3. The word hero is often over used in this day and age. That’s why Memorial Day is one of the most special days of the year, to me. May God bless all the men and women of this country that made those sacrifices so we can enjoy the safety and liberties we have today! We hope Jim enjoyed the trip and tell him thanks from all of us.
