Rocky Mountain Honor Flightwas at the WWII Memorial Friday, May 23 with a variety of veterans from WWII.  It was a perfect prelude to the Tenth Anniversary ceremony tomorrow.  It's been an amazing journey and the WWII Memorial has come to have a place in the American consciousness both as a symbol of generosity and affection for our elderly veterans.
