Blue Ridge Honor Flight

My veterans organization will be at the airport tonight to welcome home our fellow vets from their DC trip. We have a couple of members on the flight itself; had 5 members get to go in October.

There are just a handful of WWII vets capable of making the journey now. Korea vets also getting sparse. It's simply the best experience to see the patriotism on display during the ceremonies welcoming them home. And there's always a huge crowd waiting with gratitude. It's humbling and so very emotional. I cherish the moments.
