In May 2014 I went with my dad to Washington D.C. with Honor Flight Southern Arizona to see the WWII Memorial on the National Mall. We also went to Arlington National Cemetery, the Korean War and Lincoln Memorials plus Fort McHenry in Maryland. There were 29 veterans (including two WACs), my dad was one of the youngest at 85, the oldest were 95 or so. Just like war, it was a grouping from all walks of life getting together for a common purpose, then dispersing. I'll most likely never see them again, but to see them getting thanked by young people, maybe for the first time was priceless. Each veteran had a guardian to assist. We also were a good group I thought. We just got it done without complaint or incident. Members of Congress should go on a flight, they might learn something.
