Indy Honor Flight is part of the National Honor Flight Network. Their mission: To transport America's veterans to Washington, D.C. to visit those memorials dedicated to honor their sacrifices.
We were there to welcome and honor Jim's father, John Stewart, who served in the U.S. Coast Guard from 1942-1946. At 94 years of age, he was able to make the trip to D.C., accompanied by Jim's brother Paul. The group left early Saturday morning, and returned to Indianapolis that same evening.
Of course, as is usually the case with our family, we had a large group there to surprise him and welcome the group home. What an honor for us to greet this special group of veterans and thank them for their service to our country.
Arden had a little snack while we waited for their arrival.
God Bless America!
