Thank you to Michelle Restivo for writing, and The Hub for publishing the accounts of the Honor Flight to Washington D.C.

To end the series on Veterans Day was even more moving. Reading the accounts reminded me of a few tears back when my father, in failing health was offered one of these trips when he was living in Florida. He declined the offer, then told me about it some time later.

I am so sorry that he didn’t take the offer, I am so sure he would have enjoyed it.

Michelle, thanks for your relaying of what I am sure was a very moving experience. You made me feel as if I was there myself.
