Oct. 20, 2013 - WWII Veterans 'Honor Flight' Welcome 

Carl R. Todd returns to San Diego's Lindberg Field on Sunday October 20th 2013.


Honor Flight San Diego - Eighty WWII veterans returned from seeing their memorial in Washington, DC. This flight returned to Lindberg Field, San Diego, CA.

 

An amazing day with my friend Richard, friends from my WWII flying group and many others at the 'Memorial Weekend Honor Flight Welcome Home' celebration. All of us young and old honored WWII Veterans as they returned home from seeing their WWII Memorial in Washington, DC. Lots of emotion, tears, joy and happiness. So happy to see so many children attend. A truly Patriotic day filled with memories I'm sure we'll all hold close to our hearts.
