As you're reading this, I'm packing and getting ready for an adventure with my soon-to-be 92 year old Dad. We're headed to Washington D.C. for what I know is going to be a memory-making experience. It's all thanks to HonorFlight.org a non-profit organization that's been responsible for getting almost 100,000 WWII veterans to the World War II Memorial and in turn recognizing the contribution of this amazing generation.
I decided to share this in a post today because Dad and I figured out that in order to have served in WWII you'd have to be at least 88 years old today. That's an aging audience with limited time to be shown the appreciation every veteran deserves.
We first heard about the concept when out to dinner with friends. Our friend Mary Jane had sent her father on one of the Honor Flights. The more I listened the more excited I got for two primary reasons. First, I feel pretty lucky to be my age and still have my Dad to knock around with. Second, I loved the idea of creating a memory.
