LACONIA — The New Hampshire Wing Honor Guard of the Civil Air Patrol was privileged to provide a Cordon in support of Honor Flight New England's September flight, "Operation Gratitude".
On September 28 the Honor Guard flew to Washington DC to join Honor Flight New England and the 200 World War II veterans from New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and New York. The veterans would join 400 additional World War II veterans from other states to see "their" Memorial for the first time.
This was a day filled with joy, sorrow, amazement, and stories shared from one generation to another.
"We did what we had to do without giving it a second thought" said one veteran when thanked for their service by a Cadet.
In addition to honoring and interacting with the veterans, the cadets had the opportunity to meet former Secretary of State Gen. Colin Powell and the Marine Corps Commandant, Gen. James Amos.
The Honor Guard is grateful to the Laconia VFW for their support. Cadets were responsible for fundraising to pay their way. When airfare costs increased the VFW came through with a generous donation that made this trip possible.
