The power of music!

A wonderful story from a WWII veteran

On September 4th, the same day Mr. Garnett's fellow veterans will fly to Washington, DC on an Honor Flight, a group of volunteers will bring a Virtual Honor Flight to his house. Veterans United Home Loans in partnership with Central Missouri Honor Flight will offer the first-ever "Virtual Honor Flight" via Google Plus Hangouts.  Using this group video chat room and live streaming technology on You Tube, Mr. Garnett and other aging veterans will get to see their memorial and experience the magic of an Honor Flight from the comfort of their own homes, even if they're too sick to fly.

More info on the virtual honor flight to be held on Tuesday, Sep 4th can be found here

Regular readers will recall that for Jerry's funeral donations to Honor Flight were requested. It is good to see their work still going on! And that thanks to folks like Sarah Hill a virtual honor flight can happen through the wonders of the technology available today.
