Honor flight was a great experience -- Dennis Powell

  • 0

I recently went on the Badger Honor Flight, and what an experience it was.

I offer a big "thank you" to the volunteers and staff who did a tremendous job at organizing and facilitating such an incredible day. They put in countless hours of their own time so everything went smoothly for all of us veterans. The experience in Washington, D.C., was more than I could have imagined. We were treated like royalty the entire day.

On the flight home, we received "mail call." I opened beautiful cards and letters -- some from people I didn't even know. It brought tears to my eyes for their kind words of gratitude.

When we returned to the airport, it was filled with a sea of friends, family and strangers cheering us on and sending us endless thanks for our service. It was a moment I will cherish forever, and I want to express my appreciation. Thank you so much for a day and an experience I will never forget.

Thank you Badger Honor Flight.

Dennis Powell, Middleton
