Sister Jody O’Neil accompanies brother on Honor Flight
In April 2022, Sister Jody O’Neil accompanied her brother, Mike, on an Honor Flight from Indianapolis to Washington, D.C., in which veterans receive the opportunity to visit war memorials and more. Here are some photos from the trip. All photos were taken by Casey Kellum.
Thanks for posting Casey’s photos, Jason. And Casey, thanks for shadowing us throughout that eventful day at the WWII Memorial, the Vietnam Wall & sculpture and Arlington National Cemetery with the Tomb of the Unknown. You captured some special moments. It was a beautiful Spring day in DC with lots of tourists stopping to thank Mike and his veteran companions for their service.
Thanks, too, to Maureen Dickinson and S. Jeanne Hagelskamp for your behind the scenes interest and support of this venture.
You are most welcome, Jody. I am so glad that you got to accompany him. Both he and you waited a long time for this!!!
This was a once in a lifetime opportunity for Mike and you, Sister Jody. We feel privileged to have shadowed you along this moving journey.
These pictures are such a treasure for us as we imagine how both Jodi and Mike were making memories. Thanks to all who made this possible, and especially to Casey. We all get to be a small part of the event due to Casey’s many photos.
Beautiful photos help to retain wonderful memories. Thanks for sharing such a momentous occasion with us!
What a beautiful journey with the brother and sharing all the history . What a gift for you and your beloved brother . Blessings , peace be with you and yours ! Thankyou
I also enjoyed looking at your photos. My husband is also a veteran, and we will soon be traveling to Arlington for the internment of his brother and sister-in-law, also veterans. We owe so very much to all our veterans, all the way back to 1776, for the sacrifices they and their families made for all of us. Thank you again for sharing. I’m happy for you both that you could make the trip.
