We were picked up from Union Station by our tour guide Brian with Bi-Partisan Tour Company. We had a five hour private tour that was so awesome. He told great stories and we saw so much. He took picture of us at each stop. I can't wait to see them. We stopped at the US Capitol, Ford's Theater, US Treasury, White House, Air Force Memorial. Marine Memorial, FDR Memorial. Lincoln Memorial, Jefferson Memorial, WWI Memorial, Korean War Memorial, Vietnam Memorial, Martin Luther King Memorial and Einstein Statue. Claire asked so many questions that I said I hope you are not charging by the question.
Great meet and greet tonight in Foxcroft Heights near the Air Force Memorial. Thanks to John Moran for hosting and to all who came out to talk about how to make Arlington even better!
Time with troops on the ground and time out to thank our Veterans are two of the true high points of my job. This afternoon, I met up with World War II, Korean War and Vietnam War Veterans of all services. Under shade trees at the Air Force Memorial in Arlington, I thanked them for their service and listened to their stories. A few could not leave their bus because of the heat and humidity, so I went to talk with them. The honor and privilege is all mine. We owe our freedom to the men and women who have sacrificed and continue to sacrifice in the service of our nation.

I know it's shameful. I've yet to look at the Air Force Memorial and I can walk to it, both parents were AF during Nam on Guam
The Air Force memorial has such an awesome view. I'm glad I ran there today 😎
The premier rock band of the air force, Max Impact, has a concert at the air force memorial near Pentagon.
And the wheels on the bus continue to go round and round. Headed to Arlington National Cemetery to visit with my Dad. It will be the first time back for Melanie,Christie, and Katie since we buried him. From his grave site, we can see the Pentagon and the Air Force Memorial. Since we are passing through, we will only have a few hours in the area. The rest of the tour group will be visiting other memorials like WWII and MLK Jr. To my beautiful sisters, Maeling L Schenck, Maehing Schenck Olive, and Suyin Schenck-George; I love you and will tell Dad hello for you.

Thanks to everyone who participated in yesterdays Honor Flight escorts. We were able to cover three flights (Kern County (Ca.), Lone Eagle, and Space Coast (Fl.). Kern County gave us a standing ovation when we walked out after parking the bikes, which was awesome. The Space Coast group ran into heavy traffic and some of the group got separated, but two (Dan Cabrera, John Maher) managed to deliver that group to the Air Force Memorial which was their first stop for the day. The rest of the group made it to the WWII memorial to greet them when they arrived there. Lone Eagle (National Honor Flight) did their outstanding job as usual bringing veterans who come from various locations together to insure they see their memorial. Thanks to Ralph Brignac and Bob Nelson for their work behind the lenses of their cameras to provide the pictures we all see. Thanks again, Keith
Who is joining us in Arlington? We enjoy meeting you at residencies in Arlington. Did you know Arlington is technically not a city but the nation’s smallest self-governing county? Arlington is home to a number of federal agencies including the Pentagon and the Department of Defense. It is also where you can find a number of our nation’s memorials including the Arlington National Cemetery, the Marine Corps War Memorial, and the U.S. Air Force Memorial. For those of you who are Civil War enthusiasts, you can also find a number of landmarks of that era as well. If you have time after the daily residency sessions, be sure to visit Crystal City which features a number of wonderful restaurants and shops. Enjoy your residency and your stay!
Experienced an awesome day as physician for the Stars and Stripes Honor Flight Bravo yesterday taking 220 World War II veterans and their Guardians in two Delta 757s to Washington, DC to visit the WWII Memorial, the Viet Nam wall; the Korean Memorial; Lincoln Memorial; Arlington National Cemetery; the US Air Force Memorial; the US Marines Iwo Jima Memorial; the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier ceremony; and the inflight mail call; and the indescribable welcome home as thousands of military and families and friends saluted, sang and shouted love and respect to their heroes, waving banners, flags and welcome home signs. Became close friends with US Navy veteran Richard Carlson as his personal Guardian. American Legionnaire comrade Bill Weix was accompanied by his grandson Mark who celebrated his 30th birthday as Bill's guardian. Grateful thanks to all who participated!

What a day! Chris and I are in the DC area Doing a Roads Scholar program. Today we started with a lecture on campaign financing, then it was on to the Jefferson Memorial, then the World War II Memorial, then the Kennedy Center for performing arts, then we visited the Saudi Arabian Embassy, then the Iwo Jima Memorial, and then the Air Force Memorial. We are now getting ready to go to King Street Blues for dinner and then we will go on a tour of the White House Area. What is amazing is that Chris and I are the youngest ones in the group.
On Wednesday, October 12, I participated in a Honor Flight that other members of the 80 Division Veterans Association might find interesting. The day started before dawn at Chicago Midway Airport. The veterans were greeted by Honor Flight volunteers, put in wheelchairs at the curb, if needed, and registered. A fully loaded plane then took off for Washington, D.C. Upon landing, we were greeted by the fire department with a fire hose spray and a group of military and civilians people. We were put into buses and driven through Washington. First to the Air Force Memorial, had a breakfast box lunch and then back on the bus. We went, to Arlington National Cemetery. watched the changing of the guard and sang the National Anthem. We also saw the Vietnam Memorial and the Korean Memorial. Drove next to the WW II Memorial and watched another changing of the guard. It had been drizzling off and all day long, but ay this time it started to really pour. We then went to the National Air and Space Museum and then back t ...
This Saturday I will be escorting 100 World War II vets including my father to Washington DC so they can see the World War II Memorial. We will also be taking them to see the Iwo Jima Memorial, The Air Force Memorial, and then Arlington. I feel honored to be able to excort these American hero's on this trip. We will be returning from Washington DC to Daytona International Airport at 8pm on Saturday so if anyone would like to greet the returning heros when they arrive at the airport please do so. Just tell the attendents at the parking lot that you are there to honor the returning WWII vets on the Honor Air Flight and you will get free parking at the airport. This is the very last flight of its kind so come out and show these men that truely saved our country that we appreciate what they did for us. We owe these men for our very existance. A debt that can never be re-paid, but we can do this.

There is nothing, absolutely nothing, more patriotic than a Mennonite walking around the air force memorial, pentagon, and Arlington National Cemetery singing the national anthem on 9/11. Except maybe corn.

Perfect crisp sunrise run past the Air Force Memorial, the Pentagon, Arlington National Cemetery, the Lincoln and around Theodore Roosevelt Island, all while dodging Army boys running the Mt. Vernon trail. I love fall!
Did not see Einstein but did learn because of his decision back in 1936 not to visit Germany was a good thing. Hitler would have executed him for being a Jew. Visited Vietnam Wall, WWII Memorial, downtown DC and the Holocaust museum. Arlington Cemetary and Air Force Memorial on Mon. Hilton in Springfield is the best deal. No parking fee, great breakfast and gave us $30.00 credit toward dining.

It was great riding a car-free GW Parkway and Route 110 this morning at Bike DC. The view of D.C. from the Air Force Memorial is quite good. But it got pretty crowded for late riders near the Iwo Jima Memorial.
Yesterday, we visited George Washington's home, Mt. Vernon, then the Air Force Memorial.
