"Ray Guttendorf, US Marine Corps, Vietnam Era, One More Tour with Honor".

This is what my name tag had on it for my recent trip on Tuesday, August 20 with the Land of Lincoln Honor Flight. I was on this trip with our son Ray and approximately 97 other veterans and their guardians plus some staff.

It was a full charter plane and when we arrived in Washington, DC we were separated into four busses to tour our nation's capitol. We viewed memorials for World War 2, Korean War, Vietnam Veteran's Memorial "The Wall", Lincoln Memorial, Washington Memorial, US Marine Corps Iwo Jima, Air Force.
