It was a monumental (pardon the pun) day with Space Coast Honor Flight and Honor Flight Central Florida combining to make the trip to Washington D.C. The weather was great and the rain cooperated, waiting till after we boarded the buses to go back to the airport.
The staff and volunteers would all like to thank the Veterans and especially their guardians for making this a trip to remember. Watch this space for information about the trip reunion scheduled for November 10 at 2:30 PM.
