    Honor Flight

    Does anyone know anyone who has taken the HONOR FLIGHT to Washington for veterans? If so what was their opinion and was it an emotional roller coaster?

    I have been selected to be on the next HONOR FLIGHT from my area and my daughter will act as my Guardian on the trip.

    My mother-in-law (now 96 years old) was a Navy Nurse during WWII and received and Honor Flight from her home town of Knoxville, TN. to DC a few years a go. She said it was very exciting and an honor but she didn't know what all the fuss was about. She initially didn't want to go but we really encouraged her to go. I think that is the sentiment of that generation - it was their duty to defend and support the country but when the war was over they simply wanted to go home live the rest of their lives without any fanfare.

    No one can speculate what your emotions will be as I am sure that your experience is yours and yours alone. What WE can do as citizens and former service personnel (me - USCG) is state a profound and sincere "Thank for your service and for your sacrifice to our Country" and pop snappy 4.0 salute to you, Sir. The honor is ours to provide a well deserved gesture of gratitude to you. Carry on.

    My father went two years ago. It was both an emotional and enjoyable experience for him. I know that he was glad that he went.

    I know two people here that went, they were so happy they went when they got back.
