We hope that you know HOW much we appreciate each of you and the time you take out of your lives to come out and greet our heroes. Occasionally, we receive emails from other hubs, or from random people who want to let us know how amazing our program is and how it has touched them. Luckily with our new website, we can share them easier with you all. Here is an excerpt from a recent email we received:
I traveled with the San Francisco Bay Area Honor Flight contingent this
past week, and wanted to thank you and all of your volunteers who greeted
us at Dulles on Thursday and helped send us off on Saturday afternoon. They
were all wonderful and our vets felt valued like the VIPs that they are.
(They especially got a kick out of seeing the kids, who all thanked them
for their service.)
My mother accompanied my grandfather, who served in the Navy in WWII, and I
was fortunate to accompany Mauro, who served in the Army in Korea and, at
92, had never been to DC. They both had once in a lifetime experiences.
I know that it’s a lot of work to coordinate and organize all of those
wonderful volunteers to make this experience so special, so thank you from
the bottom of my heart.
And from ours too!!
Your Dream Team
