I wish I’d known about this a year ago. It was over a year ago that my father, a WWII US Army Air Force pilot, was diagnosed with leukemia.
It’s too late for my father; he passed away on February 11th of this year at age 88.
It may not be too late for your father, your grandfather. If he was a veteran of WWII, please take advantage of this wondrous opportunity:
Honor Flight Network is a non-profit organization created solely to honor America’s veterans for all their sacrifices. We transport our heroes to Washington, D.C. to visit and reflect at their memorials. Top priority is given to the senior veterans – World War II survivors, along with those other veterans who may be terminally ill.
Of all of the wars in recent memory, it was World War II that truly threatened our very existence as a nation—and as a culturally diverse, free society. Now, with over one thousand World War II veterans dying each day, our time to express our thanks to these brave men and women is running out.
It’s not too late to take this journey. Too late for me. Please. Make it not too late for you.
Take the adventure. If you have a loved one, make it the adventure of their lives. Accompany them, hold them, honor them. Recognize their amazing achievements.
Trust me; they won’t do it themselves. You have to do it for them.
Honor them now. Hug them now. Kiss them now. Life is so fleeting. Don’t be me. Don’t make my mistakes.
Every day is a new blessing.
