The veterans slowly made their way past the throng of cheering people who were waving flags and holding up posters. Smiles and tears of joy flowed freely as they reached the spot where they were reunited with their families.
The mission to honor the group closed triumphantly with echoes of the ticker tape parades that once celebrated the end of the war and the safe arrival home of the service members.
Many more veterans remain who have not yet seen their memorial and not yet been so honored and thanked. Indy Honor Flight now sets its sight on flight number three, which is scheduled for a fall departure.
