‘We won’t forget … ’

To the editor:

To Charlie Walker and every single person involved with the recent Honor Flight, I’d like to express my gratitude for the opportunity to be on the flight. So very many people had to have been working behind the scenes for all of it to come together, so perfectly. To the chaperones, the generous donors, those who unselfishly invested their time and effort and money in this trip, I want them to know it was enjoyable and so memorable for all of us. To all the kind folks who showed up Saturday evening at the airport and braved the wind and cold and late hours, to be there just to honor us, thank you. It meant so much to us veterans. I think I can speak for all of us – we won’t forget how you remembered and honored us. Thank you so much.
