Bob and I were on a flight this past September. Bob served in Germany during the Korean War and was a First Sergeant when he left the military.
We had a great day on Honor Flight, and Bob really enjoyed it. One thing I remember is during the "mail call" on the bus on the way back to the airport, I had to read all of the many heartfelt letters aloud to him. You see, Bob was legally blind. I read a three paged love letter from his wife of 62 years, heart-wrenching letters from his daughters and grandchildren, and from six year olds he had never met. Neither of us had a dry eye. Rest in Peace, Bob. It was a pleasure knowing you.
