Honor Flight & Korean War
A Honor Flight is conducted by non-profit organizations dedicated to transporting as many United States military veterans as possible to see the memorials of the respective war(s) they fought in in Washington, D.C. The Korean War (25 June 1950 – 27 July 1953) was a war between the Republic of Korea (supported primarily by the United States of America, with contributions from allied nations under the aegis of the United Nations) and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (supported by the People's Republic of China, with military and material aid from the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics). /5

Spent yesterday as a part of Honor Flight escorting WWII and Korean Vets to the Memorials in Washington DC. 7 different Honor Flights were there from around the country with approximately 600/700 Vets. Talk about a humbling experience...my veteran served in WWII, Korea and Vietnam! The stories I heard from him and from other veterans were pretty amazing…one man was as a B-17 Bombadier, another was in the Battle of Porkchop Hill during the Korean War, while another vet I met, from the Oregon Honor Flight, flew with Jimmy Doolittle! Greatest Generation for sure!! If you ever have the opportunity to participate in your area for Honor Flight I highly recommend it!! Awesome experience and great day! Thanks Matt!! www.honorflight.org

Monroe veterans take their Honor Flight Two Monroe residents who served in the Army during the Korean War era will be among 33 other veterans on today’s Honor Flight to visit various War Memorials in Washington, D.C. Story:
My dad spent the day in Washington DC on Tuesday with WWll and Korean War vets, as part of the Honor Flight. They saw military monuments and statues. Dad liked seeing the Iwo Jima Memorial, and the changing of the guard at the Tomb Of The Unknown Soldier. But what he kept coming back to was how the public reacted to seeing all of these vets. "They would just come up to us to say thank you. Regular people,ladies, and kids. They would hug us, thank us and clap. Just regular people,not part of a greeting group, workers, tourists, shoppers,they would stop what they were doing to thank us." Specially memorable was the Japanese guy thanking them and asking them to sign his flag,one of the vets asked the guy what he was going to do with the flag,the 'kid' looked up and answered " I'm keeping it." Dad ended the story by stressing that this happened IN THE RAIN! On behalf of the Honor Flight Vets I'd like to thank the city and tourists of Washington DC. If you know someone who lives there will you thank them fo .. ...
Sheri Briley Dear Friends, In 1943, at the height of World War II, a young 18 year old left St. Louis to join the Navy. His journey would take him around the world in service to the United States aboard the USS New Mexico (BB-40). While on board the battleship, he survived two Kamikaze attacks, and was present at Japan’s surrender that ended the War. He also served aboard a radar ship during the Korean War. After the Wars, Mr. Vernon Dascher returned to St. Louis where he would raise his family (that includes his eldest grand-daughter, Rebecca Davis onbaord the Bush!). He retired from McDonnell-Douglas, and has settled in St. Charles, MO where, later this year, he will celebrate his 90th birthday. He remains connected to the rest of the USS New Mexico Crew, and has served as their Association’s president for nearly 25 years. On May 20, 2014, “Ole Vern,” as he is fondly known, will join a World War II Veterans’ Honor Flight that will leave Lambert Field for Washington, DC to visit their memorials ...

Just watched 27 Korean War vets receive there last mail-call ending the honor flight they have been on
My dad is a WWII and Korean War vet. He went on the Honor Flight out of Kansas in June. He is still tough, and I know for a fact, he would have been tearing down those barricades. The greatest generation waited 60 years for their memorial. Nothing should keep.them from accessing this. They earned it for sure.
One simple act can mean everything to so many. For more than 150 Korean War veterans, a donation from the Iowa West Foundation means they are going on an honor flight.

Korean War vets to Honor Flight organizers: What about us?
Dad left yesterday for his "Honor Flight" to Washington, D.C. He said he had a great time with everyone. There were 160 veterans, most of them were Korean War vets, and a chaperone for every 2. They were met by 3 buses and taken to the WW2 Memorial, Vietnam Memorial, Iwo Jima Memorial and a lot of other places too numerous to mention. The plane was met by almost 2000 people at the Springfield,IL airport.
Found out today I'll be going on an Honor Flight to DC this Monday w/ a group of WWII and Korean War vets to see their monuments. Amazing.
Father's Day was extra special this year...Tim escorted his father on the Honor Flight to Washington, D.C. on Saturday. Bob is a veteran of both WWII and the Korean War. It was a memorable day for both. Wesley was baptized on Sunday morning and he was perfect!! Then we topped off the day with a T-ball game. It was great to spend the day with 3 great fathers.and also to celebrate our 34th wedding anniversary!
Right about now, my father is on his way home from Washinton, DC having experience the Honor Flight for WWII and Korean War veterans. This is the letter, along with many other notes and well wishes from friends and relatives will be given to him at the airport when he returns: Dad, I owe you my life,.having spent your youth enduring the hardships of one of the most difficult eras in American history, The Great Depression, where it could be construed that your country had failed you,...you unflinchingly, as heroes do, went, when called on, to serve your country in the European theatre during WWII. From your harrowing trans-Atlantic crossing on the Queen Mary, to the airfields of the Eighth Air Force in England prior to the D-Day, to landing at Utah Beach during the invasion, taking part in the liberation of Paris, the difficult campaign in the Netherlands, the winter in Belgium punctuated by the Battle of the Bulge, and ending the war crossing into Germany via a pontoon Bridge, driving a truck loaded with ...

Link to a video that documents the Quad City Honor Flight 20th trip. This is a trip that my father was on. The segment that captures the Korean War monument is pretty touching.
Heard magnificant 30-minute presentation this morning on the Korean War (the "forgotten war") by former middle school teacher and Honor Flight Director Bill Richards. Made more interesting by my having recently read "The Coldest Winter" -- I highly recommend it.
Chris Gilson, Just wanted to thank you for the use of your WHBF camera light. I got what I would call an amazing photo of my Honor Flight Veteran Richard Pianca by the memorial of the Korean War. I am so grateful and I apologize for any delay that might have cause you in performing your duties. Richard served in the Korean War...interesting fact is that his daughter was born the day he landed in Korea.it was 13 months before he met his child.anyway your the best.

To all my friends, friends of friends, and etc... Tomorrow, Oct 25, is the final Honor Flight out of Ocala. We will be taking about 180 World War II Veterans to Washington DC to visit the WWII memorial, Korean War Memorial, Arlington Cemetary, and various sites around the DC area. PLEASE join in welcoming home the GREATEST generation to Ocala airport tomorrow night when they get back home. The festivities start around 8:30 in the evening, we will arrive back somewhere around 10 PM. If you can, I ask that you please honor these Veterans and show your support as we welcome them home when we arrive. I promise a great time and fantastic memories you will have forever.
One week from today my father and my daughter will board a plane in Ocala, FL to take the Honor Flight to Washington, DC. This is a specail flight for veterans of WWII to honor them for their service to their country. My Daddy was in both WWII & the Korean war. I'm am so excited that he has this opportunity!
I had the pleasure and honor of assisting and helping board an Honor Flight which is carrying approximately 45 veterans from the Korean War and World War II from Reno to Baltimore where they will go to D.C. The oldest of these veterans is 95 years old who is still walking without any walker or wheelchair. One of these heroes was wearing his original captain's hat he wore in 35 missions including Berlin 5 different times. His son was wearing his original brown leather Bomber Jacket which his father also wore during those 35 missions. On the left front side of the jacket was 35 bombs (silver in color) signifying each mission he flew. It is days like this I wish everyone could experience in order to honor and appreciate these heroes that have given us the freedom we have everyday. It is important to realize at this critical time we choose the direction of OUR great country. We MUST NOT take these freedoms for granted. GOD bless these veterans and all our military and GOD BLESS THE USA!
My dad, Jim Grady, will be in Washington, DC on Tuesday. He left for the Honor Flight this evening. Dad served in the Air Force in the Korean War. Proud of my dad!!

Thanks to everyone for the wonderful birthday wishes yesterday. We spent a beautiful afternoon and evening in Milwaukee at Miller Park honoring "The Greatest Generation" - the World War II veterans at the Stars & Stripes Honor Flight event. There were nearly 30,000 people in attendance. Watch for the documentary movie "Honor Flight" that we saw presented last night on the JumboTron at Miller Park to be shown at some point (presumably) on Public Television. The Honor Flights are offered free of charge to WWII veterans so they can fly to Washington DC to see the WWII War Memorial. It was an honor for me to be at this event, to share the day with my parents and Debbie's parents (both Dads served around the Korean war time) and also get to talk to several WWII veterans.
