To the editor:

As Veterans Day approaches, I had the distinct honor to accompany Honor Flight No. 34 for veterans to Washington, D.C., on Oct. 16 with about 85 veterans, 85 guardians, and the Honor Flight staff. (Leonard Shaffer from Auburn was one of the veterans being honored.) 

It was hard to put into words the feelings of reverence, respect and appreciation that were bestowed on our veterans all that day. The work that they did 50, 60 or 70 years ago helps maintain our freedom that we enjoy today.

Please join with me in saying “thank you, veterans” and “welcome home.” We all may be different in some ways, but we are all united as patriotic Americans!

P.S. — God bless America!
