May 14, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

This is a little gallery of selects from Honor Flight Chicago's  May 11, 2016 flight   It was an amazing time at the WWII Memorial with 100 veterans, 100 plus guardians, volunteers "The President's Own" United States Marine Band and family members who came to greet their veterans. It's an incredible  phenomena and I am delighted to be part of it. The images from today are available for download for "personal use.  Honor Flight Chicago celebrated its 70th Flight and I have been at sixty-nine of them and will celebrate my 70th in three weeks.  untitled-5704untitled-5704

Despite the weather, everybody performed flawlessly and it looked like the Veterans were having a great day despite the rain which we've been having plenty of these past two weeks. Honor Flight Chicago's ceremony is enhanced by the talents of "The President's Own" United States Marine Band"' "Gunnery Sergeant" Sara Sheffield. The last gunnery sergeant I worked with was certainly not as talented as Sara Sheffield but he did have a really loud voice! That's Gunnery Sgt Dave Haglund who played taps.
