For those of you not familiar with Honor Flight, let me explain what their mission is all about. Honor Flight helps World War II Veterans fly to the World War II monument in Washington D.C. at no cost to them. They also match Honor Guards with veterans as chaperones, to assure the veterans leave, arrive and enjoy their time at the monument to them, and their brother’s in arms. The Honor Guards volunteer for this duty willingly and at their own expense, it costs them $500.00 to chaperone. Above you will hear about Ryan’s story, he was chosen as a chaperone, his is a very touching and soul-stirring story explaining about his experience while gathering the funds to go and while chaperoning.
What a wonderful way to show appreciation to our WWII vets, paying their way to see their monument.
