To the editor:
Thank you all who contributed to the Honor Flight Syracuse Mission 002 trip to Washington D.C. on Oct. 5. All of you, who raised the money so that we did not have to pay, took us on the mission or greeted us so warmly, cannot imagine the impact on those of us veterans who were privileged to go.
It was a series of events that can never be forgotten. There just are no words to describe the variety of feelings we felt and still have.
The welcomes in Washington and the return to Syracuse were overwhelming. A special thanks to all who participated, too many to mention here. They were thrilling, to say the least.
Thank you Honor Flight Syracuse staff and volunteers who made it all possible and executed it so amazingly well. If anyone reading this knows a WWII or Korean War veteran, encourage him or her to apply to go. Younger veterans will have a chance to go on later flights. Go.
