Honor Flight Chicago is only a year old, but it's slowly gaining ground. It is a group trying to raise money to fly WWII veterans out to see the Memorial in DC - most of whom have never gotten the chance to see themselves honored. Check out the website for more information.

It's nice to see there are people doing things for other people and these vets are finally getting the recognition they deserve...albeit it 60 years later. As the saying goes, better late than never.
