Everyone Should See This Film! A Great Tribute to Our WW11 Veterans
10 December 2012 | by (Washington- DC) – See all my reviews

I had the great opportunity to view the film " Honor Flights" Dec 7th at the DAR Constitution Hall in Washington- DC. This film gave a very good background on the creation of Honor Flights and then featured some well deserving WW11 Vets who shared some of their stories with all their humbleness and humor. I felt proud, with immense emotion and I felt grateful for this GREATEST generation of men and women who when the call came to defend their country for our freedoms- they and their buddies signed up at the front lines- They were unlike any young man of today- they smoked and joked, chased women and wanted a shiny car. They gave everything they had without complaining and lost so much- they came home and moved on with their lives- marrying and having families and happily lived along amongst some terrifying memories. This movie gave these guys a chance to feel like the stars that deserve to shine far brighter than that anyone from Hollywood ever could. This movie gave them a chance to tell some of their stories and to feel special. I highly urge parents to take their children, grandparents to take their grand kids- This movie is a must ! Freedom isn't free and these guys gave it all for ours... Let's show them how grateful we are! I
