Mission #37’s only WWII Veteran Watt Gee & his companion comfort dog Minnie, getting his long awaited “welcome home”!


The largest welcome ever at Reagan Airport

Another surprise, The US Army Drill Team

Another Mission #37 bonus, an off duty Tomb Guard spent time talking about his job guarding the Tomb of the Unknowns

Dr. Gossett & a guardian frolicking at the US Air Force Memorial

 Hour 25 (at 0dark30) or so in either Milwaukee or Minneapolis airport trying to get back home!!

Even though we landed 11 hours late at CWA people showed up for the welcome home.

(CWA was still packed with people on Tuesday at 0030 hours when we were then diverted to Milwaukee & later to Minneapolis)
