    Honor Flight Network (my dad's back!) *pics*

    Advertisements
    This is cool! Honor Flight is a non-profit organization that provides transportation for veterans to Washington, D.C. to visit all the memorials there. They give priority to those veterans who are terminally ill and senior veterans.

    Because a lot of the veterans that travel to D.C. with this group are not in the best of health, there are physicians that go too just in case there are any health issues on the plane. Well my dad was chosen to be the Flight Doctor for his local chapter I'm so proud of him and I know he thinks this is a huge honor!

    Anyway, if anyone is interested in learning more about it - and maybe has relatives that would like to participate - here is the link.

    Can't wait to hear my dad's experience when he's done! Maybe I'll have some pics to post ... I believe he will also be accompanying the veterans as they tour DC.

    My dad is back! He said he had a super awesome time.

    He got a special t-shirt and he got to stay with the veterans on the plane and to all the memorials.



    On the way back from the airport they had a huge motorcycle escort! Dad said it was the Patriot Guard.



    There was a "homecoming" ceremony for the veterans after they got back.



    Thanks for looking!
