Eric Olander going back to Washington DC this Saturday, April 16th, 2011, for Stars and Stripes Honor Flight

Posted by on

Tomorrow I will get up at 3 am to go on a Stars and Stripes Honor Flight to Washington DC with George Sirotkin who is 92 years old and fought in the Pacific with the Navy.

To learn more go to www.starsandstripeshonorflight.org.  We will be spending the entire day in DC going to monuments especially the World War II monument www.wwiimemorial.com . There will be 200 WWII vets plus 200 guardians on a Delta airlines 747 flying into Washington Dulles airport.

Everyday 430 WWII vets pass away. About 16 million vets fought in WWII with over 400,000 giving their lives so we can have our freedoms today! I am looking forward to tomorrow!
