Honor Flight provided a historic opportunity

On Aug. 7 this year, I was privileged to be selected to go on Honor Flight Chicago to Washington D.C. This flight is to honor WWII Veterans, to participate in a memorial service at the World War II Memorial and visit other historic sites. This was a day I will never forget.
