Yup, my father was part of that generation. It's a crying shame that everything he and the others fought for is going to hell in a hand basket and our generation is doing nothing to stop it.
It all started when they removed God from our schools! Now there is no more “wrong”..

I was lucky enough to be at the airport a few years ago when a large group was deplaning. It was an honor to shake their hands as they came off. Thank you for the post.

I have been very fortunate to be able to contribute a little to three Honor Flights in a minor way. I am an Engineer and help design the ARFF (Aircraft Rescue Fire Fighting) trucks in the pictures below. I was asked if I would operate one of the ARFF’s and perform what is called a water cannon salute when the plane returns from Washington. In these pictures I am operating the 4x4 truck on the right. The plane taxi’s through an arch of water. We try to make it very special for them. These pictures were from the last Honor Flight from here in 2013. Thought I would share.

Our country is poorer with each WWII veteran who passes away.
Well put. Time marches on for us all, but there will always be something about that generation—the greatest generation—that surpasses time. It’s such a strange thought that we will no longer have these men (and women) around to tell their stories. A sad day indeed.
