I wish to thank each of you for giving me another reason for living. The trip to D.C. to view the WWII memorial will be a memory to cherish. I was humbled and honored by the respect and caring that was afforded me on that special day. I think that the most meaningful moment for me was the laying of the wreath at the WWII memorial. I had the time then to remember and say a prayer for those who did not come home. Of course the mail call on the flight back was great. I received 40 letters and I have answered them all. I had the opportunity to deliver the ones from the students to their school while I was in Grapevine. Thank you all again for helping an old veteran to enter into the sunset years of his life with joy.

How can I fully express my thanks to you for such a wonderful Freedom Flight. I know you and many others spent hundreds of hours planning the flight. It was a once in a lifetime experience you made possible for WWII veterans such as me. Being photographed at the Iwo Jima Memorial was especially meaningful because I was standing about six feet from Joe Rosenthal when he took his famous flag raising picture. Thanks again for such a wonderful trip.
