Below and on the next few pages are words of thanks from the Veterans
and Guardians after their special Honor Flight day in Washington DC.
Thank you all so very much for all your care and efforts!  What an incredible day you created for these amazing Veterans. 

The Peltz Family

I just woke up, it’s Sunday, and my thoughts of why I had such a great time yesterday on the honor flight? Why did our return to the airport show such an outpouring love, affection, and respect welcoming us home?

I feel I have the answer…

This is the greatest country in the world, and the people of America have a great love and belief in the principles of the constitution and declaration of independence.

I want to thank all those who planned this trip.  Thanks you to everyone who had a part in giving me one of the best days of my life.  And to the two wonderful women who were my Guardians, Pat and her daughter Jennifer…They gave freely of their time, money, energy and love.  I had such a great time!  I felt very well taken care of.

Again, I want to say thank you.  I’m not sure the words “thank you” really can express how I feel.

Love to all…

Burton Belenke, Veteran

I wanted to send this in and say that every Honor Flight South Florida staff member and volunteer is a hero.  The patience, dedication, kindness and love you showed my dad was just simply amazing.  The trip was awesome.  Your tireless efforts did not go unnoticed. We will remember the flight and the staff, the kindness you showed, forever.  All of you, the flight staff, and I’m sure the countless number of volunteers actually restored my faith in people.  And the unbelievable greeting when we came home, the homecoming also made me believe in our fellow man.

To all the volunteers of Honor Flight South Florida…The tour you gave me to the World War II Memorial and Washington….wow.  All I can say is I have molded the day into a Gem, and have placed it now in the vault of my priceless memories.

Charles Adderley, Veteran

Being remembered in such a nice way meant so much.  Thank you very much for the trip, the experience.  I will remember this for the rest of my life.  And to all the people involved, OUTSTANDING!

The trip was so well coordinated and organized, even General Patton would have been impressed.  I got to shake the hands of Senator Marco Rubio and his lovely family, two four star generals, old people, young people, and especially Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts.  These people were the heroes that came out on a rainy night to welcome us.  And mail call!!!  WOW!!! What a surprise!  Thank you so much.  It is one of the best days of my life.

To everyone on  the Honor Flight Team - Mission Accomplished!  Thank you so much for making the October 29th Honor Flight to Washington such a special day for my father.  He loved everything about it. Please let all your volunteers that put this together know how much Chuck and our family appreciated it!

Hello Jim, Beverly, Mercy and everyone at Honor Flight South Florida;

I Just wanted to formally and officially thank you all for all that you do to make Honor Flight possible.  My Mother and I are grateful for the amazing day and opportunity to have had this shared experience that will provide us with wonderful lifetime memories.  I had lunch with Herb, my veteran, yesterday, and he is still flying high from his experience, which he references as one of the best days of his life!

I am happy to volunteer for anything if ever needed.

Thanks again!!!

Jennifer Checkoway, ARNP, NP-C

I have just been on an Honor Flight through Honor Flight of South Florida. It was one of the most moving experiences of my life. The love, respect, and thanks experienced by all was incredible. The Legion, in fact everyone should look into this great organization and give it all the assistance it can. Their respect of our vets cannot be exaggerated!

H.M.Zibman P.E. (Ret.), Veteran

My dad, myself and our whole family wanted to thank all of the wonderful volunteers from Honor Flight for creating such and unforgettable experience.   My dad had an incredible time and was very impressed with everything done for the veterans.   We attended their homecoming on Saturday night at MIA—it really was an impressive event.  Thank you to everyone involved with Honor Flight South Florida. Really over the top. Unbelievable.

Betty de Aragon, Daughter of Veteran

I just wanted to thank everyone involved in Saturday's (10/29/2016) flight.  My father, Robert Altemose has not stopped talking about it since he's been back. Everyone made it such a very special day not only for him, but all the Veterans. I cannot say enough thank yous for all the hard work it must take, the many hours you all must have to put in to make this such a special day. Just really incredible.

Please let everyone involved with Honor Flight South Florida that you are very special people.Thank you again!”

To everyone at Honor Flight South Florida - Congratulations on a job well done.  I have never experienced anything like this in my whole life!   I had a most wonderful time with all my relatives that visited me at the WWII memorial.  You should all be commended for the great job!"

Romeo Simpson, Veteran

Thank you sounds so trite, but, I don't know how else to say it!  With all my heart I thank you for what you did for my Dad.  It was an experience of a lifetime for him and I so appreciate it!  His 'guardian' was such a great guy and though my dad was completely worn out and basically slept for 2 days after the trip, he so enjoyed himself! 

Thanks, again!
