A WWII Veteran Gives a Friend His Metal Heart

Veteran Heart Trumbull2

Today’s Message of Light…
Gillian Trumbull is a soul who inspires the hearts of others to honor the light within every soul. For the past three years she has volunteered her time to welcome and assist elderly WWII Veterans of Chicago as they embark on a day trip to Washington D.C. to visit the memorials. Veteran Bob Peck served as a Sea Bee during WWII. He was recently honored in Chicago after returning on one of the Honor Flights that Gillian helped to organize.
Bob had such an amazing experience on his own Honor Flight that he has come back for many flights to help welcome home his brothers and sisters in arms. He also sent Gillian this heart melted down and created from the propeller of a plane they shot down over the Solomon Islands. In a recent post on Facebook Gillian said, “I got the most amazing gift today. I am still so honored. I will treasure this all of my days.”
The story demonstrates how an act of honor will inspire the heart of the honored to honor another in return.
Honor Flight is an organization that honors the American veteran, one of our greatest treasures…these are the men and women who answered our nation’s call, especially at time of our greatest need. The mission of Honor Flight Chicago is to honor and thank those veterans by bringing them to Washington D.C., at no cost to them, for a day of honor. So far over 45 Chicago Honor flights have occurred carrying 3800+ veterans. (The average age of the honored veteran is 89.)
About the Honor Flight

Gillian says, “While the veterans are in Washington D.C. for the day we work on welcome home banners. At night we welcome families, friends and spouses of Veterans on the flight to the airport as we prepare an honorable welcome home surprise from the community. Thousands gather. We have bagpipes, a brass band, scout troops and community members all very excited to greet these brave men and women back home. ”

Extending gratitude to another says,
“I see what you’ve done and I thank you for the energy you have put forth.”
(From The Book of Simple Human Truths)
