Always a grand time. I'll be in a British bell tent for this event, though.

I go every year! However, every year it loses a little part of itself when less and less veterans can attend.

I definitely agree w that. I always love going into the hanger and meeting the vets. With each year there are just less and less....very sad. Especially a few who have been mainstays for years and then suddenly....they aren't there any more.

I'm going. This will be my second time since I retired (it always seems to be on drill weekend or I was deployed). I'm taking my daughter (4) and my niece (25) this year.

I can't wait. Always look forward to meeting the vets, going to the flea market and of course watching the amazing aircraft.

I remember last year as I was leaving, I thought it's going to be a year before I drive back up there...Seems like that was yesterday! This is the show that always takes my first week of vacation leave for the year...sort of my "official start of summer"!!
