Guestbook for Honor Flight Chicago Jul 14, 2010
Carrie Worthington(non-registered)
My father was on this honor flight. I helped sign him and his brother Andy up in April of 2009. They were both very excited about going and they bought matching hats that said "WWII Veterans". We knew the wait was about a year, but they continued to talk about it the whole time. My Uncle Andy passed away May 7. One week later we received the call that Joseph & Andy Mooha were scheduled for the July 14th flight. Even though his brother would not accompany him, my father Joe was still excited to go. His health was failing but was determined to make the flight. Sure enough, wheelchair bound by then, he went on this amazing journey. We had four generatios of his family there, more family and friends to greet him. What an amazing experience we all had greeting the 95 veterans back from their honor flight. Lots of tears and laughs. My father passed away 11 days later but all we heard at his wake was 'at least he made the trip' We had a beautiful display of his Honor Flight momentos and pictures at the wake and my mother plans to donate half of the money we received so another veteran's trip will be paid. Thank you all the volunteers and photographer for capturing my fathers last days on earth.

This trip was awesome! There are so many wonderful people that made this possible and I personally want to thank all of them! My Dad, Harry L. Klich, had a great time and the welcome home was a very special time for us and his great-grandchildren. He enjoyed every minute of it and is still talking about his trip! We all had tears of joy and feel so blessed that these fine veterans had this opportunity to go see this Memorial. My Dad's two sisters and brother came to welcome him home and were just overwhelmed with emotions! I just can't say enough and when I just found the pictures on the website, the tears came to me again! Thanks again to all of the volunteers and thanks to all of our veterans who will NEVER be forgotten. God bless all of you!

P.S. Thanks to the photographers who captured everything perfectly! And all these veterans...they were absolutely adorable!

My grandfather just returned last night from Washington. Our family had four generations waiting to greet him and the other veterans. It was the most amazing night, I am so glad we went to see such a honorable event. The crowd was never ending, the flags will swaying, people smiling, people crying, cheering and giving their thanks. My 8 year old son had tears in his eyes, and on the way home he said this was a night he would never forget!

My father is on the 7-14 flight. This is a wonderful opportunity to say thank you to all the veterans of this enormous conflict. No one before, or since, has been asked to "save the world" in a literal sense. The debt of those of us who follow can never be repaid in regard to what has been given us. So, to all of you who served, may God Bless You!! And thank you from all of us who have benefitted from your sacrifices. You will never be forgotten.
