    My husband, Rodney Hamon, was on this flight and without a doubt it was the best day of his life. Even after such a long day and getting home after midnight, he just could not stop talking about what it all meant to him … from the care his escort Greg Bowling gave him; to his friend, Mike Mahoney, an
    Honor Flight volunteer, to Mary, to his nurse Tammy, just everyone involved. There are no words to
    describe what everyone does to pull this off and make it seem effortless. We have never seen
    anything like this. God Bless America and Our Veterans.

    I really ejoyed the whole day; all the famous sites and the round trip. Probably the biggest surprise was the huge number of people who came to both airports to greet us,considering the weather conditions in Chicago holding the delayed flight a long time. God bless all the volunteers and people who had something to do with this trip. I appreated the mail call, t shirt, and th books we received..

    God bless Amarica and all the troops all over the world. Tony Malcak April 17, 2013
