As we celebrate this Veteran’s Day, I would like to acknowledge the time and efforts of the Greater Peoria Honor Flight (@GreaterPeoriaHonorFlight). I had the honor to go with my Dad, Don Brush, on the Greater Peoria Honor Flight on Tuesday, October 11, 2022. My Day trained plane captains for the A7 aircraft while in the Navy from 1969-1972! He is an amazing father and veteran, and I was thrilled to escort him as we visited Arlington Cemetery and all the War Memorial sites in Washington D.C. From the moment we left at 4am with a police escort to the airport, to the applause in the airport from strangers when we landed in DC, to the AMAZING welcome home ceremony at the Peoria airport from the moment we stepped off the plane, the Greater Peoria Honor Flight honored our Veterans every moment of this trip and in the way they rightfully deserve. We had 1 WWII Veteran, 15 Korean/Cold Ward Era Veterans, and 61 Vietnam Era Veterans on this trip. You can view all the video and pictures from this trip and others at on the Greater Peoria Honor Flight FB page: https://www.facebook.com/GreaterPeoriaHonorFlight/ I would encourage you to continue to support this organization as they rely on community donations to honor those who deserve to be honored. It was a trip of a lifetime, and I am grateful to have been able to go with my Dad. As he said, “It was in the Top 5 days of my life.” Thank you, Greater Peoria Honor Flight, for providing this opportunity to my dad, and THANK YOU TO ALL VETERANS now and who came before who serve our country and keep us safe.
Happy Veterans Day to each service member in the armed forces. It is because of you that each of us can enjoy safety and freedom.
