Description: Today, we welcome a group of veterans coming in from Springfield, MO. Just as they're stepping off the gangway, our BLUE JAZZ group plays Swing and Jazz Standards, sexy Samba and Bossa Nova, upbeat Blues, and some romantic Ballads. It's always such a joy and such an honor to bring our musical "Thank You" to these veterans - from WWII to the recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. It is especially moving, in addition to the many volunteers, to see today's young soldiers come by on their day off, and show their respects to their colleagues who preceded them, and to shake their hand. -- I'm getting a bit verklemmt every single time, it's such a moving and heartfelt occasion. Join us as a volunteer, or find out how to support an honor flight, coming in from anywhere in the country. https://honorflightdca.com/
