I had the amazing opportunity to volunteer as a Guardian for a WWII Veteran with South Florida Honor Flight to Washington DC.  We flew out of Ft. Lauderdale with 78 other veterans and their guardians to take them on “One last mission” to see the WWII and Korean War Memorials, Arlington National Cemetery and the Iwo Jima Memorial.  It was an awesome day to learn so much from these veterans and hear of the experiences they had and the sacrifices they made.  The world would not be what it is today without these brave men and women…truly the greatest generation!  When we returned to Ft. Lauderdale airport, there were a couple thousand people on hand to give the veterans a welcome home that they had never gotten after WWII.  It was such an honor to be a part of this flight and I am so grateful to have gotten to know my Navy veteran, Chris Nielsen.
