The Greatest Generation Gets A Deserved Welcome

The event depicted in this video occurred on 23 March of this year at Reagan National Airport. A gate attendant made a public announcement that a plane that had WWII veterans would be arriving and asked if people would like to help greet them (they were arriving to visit the WWII memorial). The nearly empty gate area swelled with people who applauded the veterans as they exited the plane.

It is nice to know that these veterans received the welcome they deserved. They are part of America’s greatest generation and they helped save the world from truly evil people.

Sadly, we lose a large number of them each and every day. It will not be long before all veterans of that war are gone so we owe it to them to let them know how much they are still appreciated.

Thank God for giving us such men and women.

God bless them and make their remaining days peaceful.
