B-24 For Dad and his Honor Flight


On Tuesday my dad was one of about 80 Veterans to take his “honor flight” to Washington DC.   They were given the red-carpet treatment for a VIP day of visiting the war memorials built to honor their service.  As family, we were asked to write a note or send a card… and I included this sketch commemorating his favorite “war story!”  

When my dad was flying in a training mission in a B-24 Liberator they encountered some turbulence, someone “lost his lunch” and my dad slipped and fell into the Turret-less hole on the bottom of the plane.   Thank God, he caught himself, and as they say, the rest is history!!  

For more information visit www.honorflight.org.   And you can see photo’s from his trip on the Facebook page:  Honor Flight of West Central Florida.
