When I got to go on the flight in May of 2008 it was an experience of a lifetime as I never expected to get to see [the World War II Memorial] at my age. The trip was wonderful in every way... None of the vets will ever forget the reception we received when we got off the plane in Washington and the huge crowd to greet us on our return to Knoxville with American Flags flying and the [Pride of the Southland] Band playing Rocky Top."
