Veteran thrilled by unforgettable memories
The Grand Island Independent - 5/19/2018
My wife, Patty, and I were among those fortunates who were blessed to make the most recent Hall County Vietnam Veterans Hero Flight. Overall, for us, it was the trip of a lifetime with unforgettable sights, monuments and camaraderie with fellow veterans.
If I had to pick one of the most spectacular monuments and tear-filled moments, it would be the six World War II Marines raising the flag over Mount Suribachi. The story goes there are more than 12 pairs of hands. The 13th is the unseen hands of God. I was just speechless.
My thanks to all these wonderful Hall County officials, Mr. Don Shuda's office and many volunteers without whom this Hero Flight would not have been possible.
