THANK YOU Chicago Honor Flight FOR A DAY MORE AWESOME THAN ANY WORDS CAN DESCRIBE! Dad and I will never forget April 8, 2015 . . . he, such an honored vet, and I as his Guardian. You all organized and carried out a "perfect" day. Friendly, caring, helpful, safety, delicious food, fun, friends, doctors, nurses, flight attendants, volunteers etc. etc. Perfect! Thank you all! Thank you South West Airlines. Great flights. And "Thank You" WWII vets for fighting for our freedom! You deserved all your honor. Chicago Honor Flight is A+++

It was such a privilege to serve as guardian for my dad on his Honor Flight. The day was more than I or my dad could have ever imagined. I can't even imagine the amount of planning and coordinating that went into this flight. There was not one detail overlooked. From the water cannon salute arriving at Dulles Airport and upon returning to Midway, the private police escort that we had all day to ensure we did not get stuck in DC traffic, to the ability to get 90 vets and wheelchairs on and off 5 motor coach buses at numerous stops with no issues, having entertainment for the vets at both airports, to organizing all the pieces of mail for "mail call", and to creating a Welcome Home Celebration at Midway airport with well over 2500 people. This was certainly not a small job...and to think it was done all by volunteers. You all deserve a huge THANK YOU for making this day so memorable for these special veterans. It is hard to find one word to describe the entire day. I will definitely be doing my part, to spread the word so that you can find the remaining WWII vets, so that they can experience their day of honor.

It was truly an honor to serve as a guardian for my 98 yr. old Uncle on the day when the Honor Flight arrived in DC. Many thanks to all those who coordinated and supported this fabulous event filled day. You have made a difference in the lives of these WWII heroes! The joy and pride was evident in the face of each veteran as we visited the memorials, were greeted by young enlisted servicemen, and toured the Air and Space musuem. From the time of departure and arrival, these veterans were treated like royalty with Music, swing dancers, large crowds lining up to cheer them on and most importantly, folks sharing the heartfelt thanks for their service toward protecting our freedom.
