My son and I were lucky enough to welcome an Honor Flight
to DC last weekend with his cub scout pack. We met the flight at Dulles and cheered for and thanked the veterans as they passed by baggage claim on their way to their tour bus. Many of them took the time to shake our hands and thank us coming out to meet them. The experience made me pretty emotional. I know these men and women hadn't paid the ultimate
sacrifice for their country, but for each of the 70-odd veterans that were on this particular flight, thousands more never got to come home. I'd never felt that fact so strongly before.
