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.

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.
