Exclusive Video: The Final Salute During the Big Sky Honor Flight

Print View

A few days before the latest Big Sky Honor Flight took off for Washington, DC, Roland Engdahl was in the emergency room.  Being part of the Big Sky Honor Flight to view the WWII Memorial was his last wish, but they never thought he would make it.  Well, he did, and his grandkids travelled from across the country to meet him in Washington, DC. 

I was there for the trip and saw the grandkids’ salute first hand. Click below for the full story.

This is such a great program and those like Roland Engdahl who made up the Greatest Generation are to be honored for their unselfish sacrifices to insure America was not defeated in WW2. We owe them so very much!

Fortunately, our country is still blessed with such men and women and their time of testing is upon them now. We need to pray they too will be victorious.

If it were possible I would render each of them my finest salute.

Thanks for your service Al- there were a few Vietnam vets on the flight as well. What an honor to be on the trip with them.

Thank you. The only words I can say reflecting back on the time and the heart showed by you and and your team. You made what could have have been another bump in history into a very memorable and reflective time for my family. You were there to capture not just a single moment, but a legacy.

God Bless and Best Wishes for a New Year.
