Last month, I had the privilege of seeing many of the memorials in Washington, D.C., as a participant in the second trip organized by Honor Flight Kern County. It was a memorable experience made possible by the monumental efforts of the organizing committee; the generous people of Bakersfield; and the "guardians" who took such good care of all us old vets. I would like to extend my thanks to all of those who made this trip possible and particularly to my personal "guardian," Nancy Griffin.
