Last fall I had the opportunity to go on a Freedom Flight, sponsored by by husband's employer, Hy-Vee Food Stores. The Freedom Flight takes WW II veterans to see their war memorial in Washington D.C. My uncle went on the same trip we volunteered to help with. It was so moving to see how much the veterans enjoyed the trip.
Here are a few pictures from the trip.
Above, is my Uncle Dean. He was a pilot in WW II. He flew in multiple missions in Europe until the end of the war.
This was the WW II monument.
There are 4000 gold starts on the Freedom Wall, which commemorate the more than 400,000 Americans who gave their lives in WW II.
The U. S Capital.
We got to see the last changing of the guard for the day at Arlington National Cemetery.
I hope everyone has a safe Memorial Day!
