This is a little off the usual topic, but it's a fun one to write about and so many of you may have an interest in participating.
Stuck for what to get my Dad for Father's Day I was talking with friends, while out to dinner last week. The topic of the Honor Flight program came up and I'm not sure very many of you know about it.
Honor Flight is a full non-profit that's providing trips to Washington D.C. for veterans of WWII to visit the World War II Memorial. They have a few different programs and pick up the bulk of the costs, depending on which trip you're doing.
Here's the bottom line. Dad is going to be 92 in October and I couldn't be more proud of his service record in the Asia Pacific during the war. We're doing this as a Father/Son trip in the fall and not only will we be able to share the adventure, but he'll have a chance to spend time with his peers, all members of an amazing generation who helped change the world for all of us.
Like I said, this is way off topic for a blog post about the Friendship Centers, but there are so many members of our community who have never seen "their" Memorial. It's well worth the time and the trip links to both the local chapter and national organization are below.
