Appreciates Honor Flight

To the editor:

I write to thank each and everyone who made it a day of joy to be on the sixth Brushy Creek Area Honor Flight to Washington, D.C., on May 11. The citizen volunteers and military personnel graciously greeted every veteran who went and returned on that special day. The crowds that met us at Dulles International Airport with their greeting of “thank you for your service” was inspirational. The crowd at our local airport that greeted us on our return flight that evening was awesome. I think all of us who went and returned are forever grateful. The Brushy Creek Area Honor Flight organization and its staff of volunteers certainly work long hours in preparation to make each flight a success.

Thank you.
