Veterans Honored in Washington D.C.


May 22, 2014 ____ A ceremony to honor 18 WWII Veteran scheduled at LAX on Sunday, May 18, 2014 at noon.  These heroes returned from a “trip of a lifetime” to see their WWII Memorials along with eight other Monuments to US servicemen.  The group represents Southern California Veterans aged from age 81 to 101.  The group is partially made up of a set of brothers, two who knew each other many years ago, two neighbors within blocks of each other’s residence and two Tuskegee Airmen.


Upon their arrival at LAX they were greeted with wheelchairs and escorted into the Southwest Ticketing area by a 12 year old Navy Sea Cadet.  This special sendoff included over 30 motorcycle veterans from the Patriot Guard Riders, family, friends as well as the volunteer Guardians that accompany the Veterans to insure their safety and Honor Flight of the Inland Empire volunteers.  The excitement was electrifying as other travelers and enlisted servicemen stopped to say thank you.


Because of the increasing age of these Veterans donations are very important to accomplish the goal of the Honor Flight of the Inland Empire to send all Veterans to Washington D C.  Although WWII Veterans are being processed at this time, all applications are welcome.
