A heartfelt story of a man getting an idea about sending WWII veterans in Michigan to see the WWII memorial. The original plan was to send 16 veterans but The story spread to neighborhoods, throughout the city and state. Business, organizations and fundraising pulled people together. This story was shows the inspiration on what can be accomplished - three 747's of veterans and caregivers. Many WWII veterans pass away every day and this story is how one state honors these men and women.

A simple and straightforward story about honoring the WWII veterans. Not only taking them to the WWII memorial in Washington DC, but being showered with love and affection by friends and family. I found this extremely moving and emotional, and as a Vietnam veteran am somewhat envious, but also very grateful that this happened.

I recently went as a guardian on Honor Flight . What a wonder trip for the men and women who served our country. Yes, we had one woman. She along with three men laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknow Soldier.
