“We can’t all be heroes. Some of us have to stand on the curb and clap as they walk by.”

It's Veteran's Day, and while I've written about HonorFlight.org many times in the past, today is the perfect time to connect you to the Honor Flight website again. Most WWII veterans have passed away, but so many of us have family and friends who served in Korea and Vietnam, and nobody's getting younger!
In 2013 I took my Dad on one of their flights to D.C., which was incredible - one of the best father-son things we ever did together. That's Dad in the blue hat above with a group that was almost entirely WWII veterans. Dad never really talked much about the war but put together with his peers, and the stories flowed non-stop. Most of the guys on this trip were Navy. While Dad was the only Army Air Corps veteran, that didn't stop the stories they shared.
If you've got a senior who's a veteran in the family, then click on the banner below and check out this amazing organization. Even with the pause due to Covid, they've flown almost 250,000 veterans and 183,000 guardians (family or friends accompanying the veteran).
And to all our friends who served, families who have members serving now, our son, Brian, Uncle Randy, and Father Tim - thank you for your service.
"If you can read this, thank a teacher.
If you can read this in English, thank a veteran."
