A very sincere wholehearted thank you to all who were involved in the WWII Freedom Flight to Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, May 24, 2011. I was well aware of the tremendous amount of preparation and work-hours that it took to bring this operation to a successful conclusion—and indeed it definitely was successful! I was overwhelmed with the entire trip especially with the time spent at the WWII memorial and getting to shake the hand of Senator Bob Dole who himself was a veteran of WWII. I feel very fortunate to have been chosen to be a part of this Freedom Flight as I will be 90 years old July 8 of this year. The flight will be a memory I will always cherish and never forget! A very grateful WWII combat veteran.

I want to thank you for allowing me to go on this Freedom Flight. I feel honored to be with other veterans. All of your time and work is most appreciated. I know I never talked about the war with anyone. It was hard but we made it. Keep our Freedom on the minds of children to keep it strong –Thank you again. May all your wishes come true, for you made my wish come true on May 24, 2011. Thank you.
It was an answer to my prayer and a life dream. I hope it will continue as time is running out for many veterans.
