A special note from Honor Flight founder, Earl Morse:
So blessed! 11 years ago TO THE DAY, this Saturday, 21 May 2005, the first Honor Flight trip brought out 12 WWII Veterans in six tiny planes. This Saturday I’ll be at the WWII Memorial to greet 496 WWII, Korean and Vietnam Veterans from across the country. Thank God for the thousands of Honor Flight Network volunteers across America that have made the dreams of over 160,000 veterans come true. Mr. Leonard Loy was veteran #1.
