Honor flights remain treasured gift for vets

I am the surviving daughter of a war veteran from World War II. When I read of the honor flight, my eyes welled with tears thinking of the death of my father on Oct. 24, 1944, in the South Pacific on an aircraft carrier, leaving four young children.

What a wonderful experience these gentlemen will have, and they will never forget how lucky they are to experience the memorials, the ultimate, on their Honor Flight.

My father has a memorial stone in the national cemetery in the Philippines as I was told by Veterans Affairs. Wish it was in Arlington.

My brothers are deceased now (two served in the Air Force), as is my mother.

For us all, I salute the people behind this wonderful gift.
