Miami’s inaugural Honor Flight landed at Miami International Airport this Saturday night and was greeted by no less than one thousand well-wishers and supporters of the 60 World War II and Korean War veterans who visited those war’s memorials in Washington, D.C.
Senator Marco Rubio and his family were on hand, as well as Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart, and potential Republican congressional candidate Brian Mast.

While all of the veterans were being pushed along in wheelchairs, this World War II vet decided that he had had enough of the pampering, and decided to push his own wheelchair. Unbelievable.
Here are some more pictures of heroes from our country’s “greatest generation.” Because many of these veterans are passing away by the day, these honor flights are set up to enlist them for “one last mission”
