To the editor:
On behalf of the Guardians that had the opportunity and privilege to be a part of the May 10 Honor Flight, we would like to extend our appreciation to the Honor Flight Committee for their dedication to this project, as well as The Messenger staff who did a great job of photography that day and the stories that were written for the paper. A huge "thank you" to everyone who has made a donation toward the costs of the Honor Flights. Without the donations the Honor Flights just wouldn't happen. It is difficult to put into words the emotions of that day - from the moment those veterans arrived at the airport until they arrived back at the terminal some 17-plus hours. It was an absolutely wonderful experience. I know the veterans, their families and friends appreciate the efforts of all those involved in making the Honor Flight a great event.
For every moment of peace, liberty and greatness our country enjoys, we have someone who has worn a uniform to thank.
