Honor Flight Echo Washington, DC!

A little rain can’t stop us! WWII Veterans have a great day in DC!

Honor Flight Echo, while being a little soggy, went off without a hitch. Rain was no match for these WWII veterans who were greeted by throngs of well wishers, offering thank you’s and high praise, everywhere they went. Despite the early hour of departure, an enthusiastic contingent of Firefighters, Police officers, military personnel and many others were present to give the veterans a fantastic  five a.m. send off. The Honor Flight group numbering 46 were marched through the airport to the gate, led by 20-plus members of the  RI Professional Firefighters Pipe and Drum Band and the Providence Police Pipe and Drum Band.

RI Senator Jack Reed, as well as former US Senator Bob Dole, greeted them at the entrance to the WWII Memorial in Washington DC. The changing of the guard at the “Tomb of the Unknown Soldier” was also viewed by our heroes. Other stops included the Iwo Jima Memorial, Korean  Memorial and the Vietnam Memorial.  The day was capped off by a dinner in their honor at the BWI Hilton in Baltimore Maryland prior to their return flight home at eight pm.
