“Thank you” is one of the most powerful statements in the English language. Discover why those two words are at the core of all we do at Honor Flight Chicago.
Narrator: Thank you is one of the most powerful statements in the English language. Despite that, many of our nation’s senior military veterans who risked their lives for our safety never received that simple acknowledgement when they returned from service. Some have waited more than 60 years to hear those two words.
Veteran: When I came back, nobody even said hello. Where were you? Really, nobody cared.
Veteran 2 [in front of the Korean War Memorial]: Freedom is not free.
Narrator: At Honor Flight Chicago, thank you is at the core of all we do. We recognize the bravery, determination and patriotism of America’s senior heroes with a one-of-a-kind journey to Washington DC. It is a day filled with honor, thanks and inspiration. Please consider helping us say thank you to these heroes. The trip is one day, but the experience is life-changing.
