Guestbook for Honor Flight Chicago Oct 26, 2010
3.Laura Gregory(non-registered)
A long overdue THANK YOU to all the volunteers who honored the 90+ veterans on October 26th, 2010.
Your personal commitment lifted the hearts of so many.
It is you that made this a day my father will never forget.
He has never felt so honored.
For this we(our family) thank you!

The Veterans' return home was overwhelmingly heartwarming. One couldn't help but feel honored to shake the hands of these men and women who have long waited to be recognized. I will certainly be at future honor flight homecomings, as will my father, who wants the opportunity to extend his hand in thanks to all other Veterans.

With Sincere Gratitude,
Laura Gregory

God Bless America,
Land that I love,
Stand beside her and guide her
Thru the night with a light from above;

From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans white with foam,
God Bless America,
My home, sweet home.

And... God Bles the entire HONOR FLIGHT CHICAGO TEAM.
The professionalism, organizational skills and personalities, I believe make them NUMBER 1.

The day for me and my father, Tom Rettenbacher will forever be held
deep in our hearts as "The Best Day of Our Life". The memories and
kindheartedness by all that participated as well as all that greeted the veterans at Midway Airport was simply miraculous.

Thank you a million times over.

All our Love,

This was unbelievable!
I will be back for the next returns of our veterans!
They are SO overdue to be acknowledged for their efforts.
My Dad had a long 18 hour day from the time he awoke, waiting in anticipation, to the time when he got home and was able to lay his head down to sleep.
"It was a well worth trip", he told us on the way home.
"Much better than I thought it was going to be", he stated.
Dad talked all the way home about his day.

As Dad and his fellow Veterans got off the plane and walked between their welcoming committees, faces of all ages had tear filled eyes. Everyone reaching out to shake hands with our deserving Veterans.
This is one moment in my life....that I will NEVER forget.
Honor Flight Chicago, thank you for making this happen.
