Honor Flight Chicago roared into the Iwo Jima Memorial with 250 people and Arlington County once again provided the escorts.  With sirens and lights blaring, they were an impressive sight as they cruised into the Iwo Jima Monument grounds.   We took a loop around the Memorial and we took off for the Air Force Memorial where the Air Force Drill Team put on a dazzling display.

Next stop was the WWII Memorial which I always recommend for group photos because it is surrounded by symbolism and your veteran and sponsor will always have a reminder of the history involved.

From there to the Korea, Lincoln and Vietnam where the veterans spread out.  I was enjoying an ice cream bar and conversation with a couple of the veterans when the skies opened up.  Wow!  Lightning, Thunder, flooding ...the works but no match for the well-prepared which I was not.
