|Lunch at Honor Flight So. CO|
At the event we got to meet many great hero's, great patriots that love and would continue to give for their country. We hear their stories, and we are incredibly grateful.
There were also some great people and organisations at the event that are helping build funds to get these vet.s on a plane to DC. They are giving so greatly, and it is heart warming to hear these people getting involved.
The great part of the day was the ending, where Honor Hands made moulds of these vet.s hands who are going on the next flight.
The lovely Honor Hands ladies went around to each of the war hero's and for eight minutes they had to hold their hand in the moulding mixture. Over this time they talked to the hero's where they shared their great stories - to which there are many.
A little and simple thing like making a mould of their hands was so heart warming to themselves and it made them feel so thankful that Honor Hands were taking this time to embed these great people. When the truth is that we are more thankful for their sacrifices compared to it being our pleasure to talk these great people.
The event was moving and great. And if you can contribute in any way to get these WWII vet.s to Washington, DC before it is too late, please donate at the Honor Flight website.
Please enjoy this selection of photos from the casting of these veterans hands:
