To The Herald-Whig:
I was fortunate to have had the real honor of being on the Honor Flight of May 17. We had a great send off, a pleasant flight and a great reception at Washington, D.C., airport. A very full day of visiting the World War II Memorial and the other war memorials. I was impressed by the Iwo Jima memorial; I did not see the flag go up, but I was there. Our flight home was great and the reception we received on arrival was really great and the escort to Quincy was awesome.
I wish to thank the people who sponsor these flights and the many people and organizations who donate their money to make these flights possible.
