    I was a FLO/CAO this past December, and this brought back some serious emotions and memories, specifically the first picture. It's a tough duty, but no where near the sacrifice of the member inside the casket.

    This Saturday I was flying up from Pensacola to visit my family for the first time since boot (Nov.) we had a layover in Washington DC. I was privileged to be there at a time when a special US airways flight was arriving it was filled with WWII vets on there way to see the memorial. It was a humbling experience to see and talk with some of these men who served this country with such distinction. Really this is the first memorial day that I ever thought about the meaning of the holiday for more than five minutes.

    That was a Honor flight out of San Diego a little back ground
    The History of Honor Flight

    The inaugural Honor Flight took place in May of 2005. Six small planes flew out of Springfield, Ohio taking twelve World War II veterans on a visit to the memorial in Washington, DC. In August of 2005, an ever-expanding waiting list of veterans led our transition to commercial airline carriers with the goal of accommodating as many veterans as possible. Partnering with HonorAir in Hendersonville, North Carolina, we formed the "Honor Flight Network." Today, we continue working aggressively to expand our programs to other cities across the nation.

    I don't drink Budweiser, and maybe it's cheesy, but I love this commercial...
