Lots of excitement at DIA on Saturday night as the twenty two WWII and seven Korean war veterans returned home from their trip to Washington DC. The fanfare included service members from all branches, families, boy scouts, bagpipers, and even dogs. The smiles and enthusiasm was contagious as the crowd waited for our heroes.

Do not have her name, but what a cutie pie
Finally the moment we were all waiting for, our presence reminding our heroes we will never forget what they did for our country.

If you missed the excitement, no worries. You can be part of an upcoming welcoming home for RMHF’s next October trip, Saturday, October 24, 2015 back at Denver International Airport in the main terminal at 7:30pm. It is a wonderful community experience and a fun way to meet new friends. I sure did!
For those of you who have not heard of this worthy organization and would like to be part of something wonderful, find out more on their website: www.rockymountainhonorflight.org
Please join me at the next celebration, and bring your tissues. It is a heartwarming experience and you will be happy to be part of it all. It also reconfirms to all the volunteers who work tirelessly to make these trips happen how important these honor flights are. Mary Haddon and Cliff Fejar, to name just a few, would love to have your support.
