#MyVeteran Favorite Shout-Outs
A generation of warriors here and gone
The organization Honor Flight Network is making sure World War II veterans, and veterans who are terminally ill, get the thanks they deserve in the form of Honor Flights — trips to Washington, D.C., “to visit and reflect at their memorials. ... Of all the wars in recent memory, it was World War II that truly threatened our very existence as a nation — and as a culturally diverse, free society.” Honor Flight volunteer Andrea Plunkett was among the social media followers to tag a World War II veteran. Her tribute is among today’s favorites:
@abkimball (Instagram): “#vscocam #myveteran Jay Willard Lord #Navy pilot USS Randolph #WWII Always our hero - we miss you everyday. Remembering the service of all veterans today!”
@AndreaPlunkett (Twitter): “From our fall Honor Flight. Love our WWII vets! #MyVeteran”
@billandpatbaker (Twitter): “#MyVeteran - Love My 90 Year Old Pop, and proud of his service!”
