Honor Flight

This past Wednesday was the first Honor Flight of the year.  I did one last year, and it was an amazing experience. 

After we get to Midway Airport, we line up, and get ready to greet the WWII veterans that are on their way back from DC from their day there.  The sight is amazing, and to see the look on the veteran's faces as they see us welcome them home is priceless. 

After the veterans are welcomed by the active duty service members rendering them honors, they go to the baggage claim area, where their families wait for them.  There are so many people there, Patriot Guard Riders, Boy Scouts, bands- you name it.  What a sight.

Please look at the link, and watch the video.  Honor Flight Chicago.  If you ever get a chance to go to Midway for one, you won't regret it. 

All the families welcoming home their WWII Hero.
