    Sgt. Delaunay,

    Even at 98, you are still such a humble man -- and have led an honorable life. I too thank you for your service and appreciate your sharing just a bit on your time in Europe. You truly deserved to go on the Honor Flight!

    I am grateful for all those from the Greatest Generation who sacrificed so much to ensure that future generations both here and abroad could enjoy freedom. I am also proud of my own father, who also served in the U.S. Navy during World War II, along with several uncles. I remain grateful that I was able to take my dad to the WW II Memorial for his 80'th birthday, not long before Alzheimer's took him away from us. Thanks to all the remaining veterans of World War II for your service!
