Today is another Honor Flight, the third-to-last of the season. The car has been loaded up with approximately six thousand pieces of mail for 95 veterans. And, as long as you’re reading this on Wednesday, I am most likely at Midway Airport or I’m sleeping. I don’t do much of anything else on Flight Days.
Pictured above are the Legacy Girls with one of our veterans from last month’s flight. The Legacy Girls are an Andrews Sisters tribute group. They entertain our World War Two veterans at the gate before each flight, singing all of the old favorites like “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy of Company B”, “Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree” and many patriotic songs. It is quite a party with flags and bunting, coffee and donuts and lots of excitement about the day ahead.
I will be back tomorrow, sleep & photography willing, with some pictures of our guest bathroom for your enjoyment–a little “reality check” in our 1970s condo!
In the meantime…
