Same here in Bakersfield. A small group in April to finish up WWII.
I've been signed up to go with VN vets for a year.
Really looking forward to it.

How did your Honor Flight go? We had one of our SIRS (Sons in Retirement) go in the last couple of months. He really enjoyed it. He was from WWII.

Really enjoyed all of it. A lot to tour in a 66 hour round trip. I will do it again someday when I can take my wife and take more time to take it all in. I was really impressed with all the memorials but the one that really stood out for me was the Korean War Veterans memorial. Also visited Arlington, tomb Of The Unknown Soldier, Changing of the Guard, Fort McHenry and many more.
It's a tough schedule but well worth it.

Thanks for asking Keith.
