Honor Flight DCA put together a special welcome for Jody McClain and Brian Ziegler on their last flight as leaders of Badger Honor Flight. It's obvious that the mission has created strong bonds and friendships so it got a bit misty at the end of the day. It was a full bore reception with bands, crowds, flags and lots of color. For a photographer who likes color, it was sensational!
