George Farrell and his team from Rhode Island were inspired to do an "all women" vet flights and with the support of the Federated Women's Clubs of America and other donations, they managed to get the ladies down here and show them their memorials.  Their first and longest stop was at the Women's Memorial just before they traveled up to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

I met them at the WWII Memorial and managed to get a few pictures of the assembled dignitaries.  George managed to get Senators Bob and Elizabeth Dole and Senator Jack Reed and Senator Maggie Hassan assemble as the women got off the bus. They were a boisterous and good natured group and Sparky and I went over to Arlington to join them for dinner.
