Honor Flights is a national organization that transports WWII Veterans, free of charge, to Washington, DC, to experience the WWII Memorial erected in their tribute. It has been my pleasure to be amid the crowds welcoming home several Flights returning to New Orleans. We're losing The Greatest Generation so quickly.
It's D-Day + 68 years. Thank you, Soldier, Sailor, Marine, Airman, Coastie, Merchant Marine.
