Great overview of how an Honor Flight Mission (#25) works.

ABC 7’s Ray Collins followed a group of World War II veterans from West Central Florida as they spent the day in Washington, DC, visiting the national war memorials. The reception they received at the airport at day’s end is something that will leave you with the chills, or a tear in your eye.

World War II Vet Reunites with Man he saved from Concentration Camp

Sid Shafner, 94 and Marcel Levy, now 90 reunited again

World War II veteran, Sid Shafner, 94, from Colorado was reunited with Holocaust survivor, Marcel Levy, now 90, whom he set free from a concentration camp seven decades ago.

World War II veteran, Sid Shafner, 94, from Colorado was reunited with Holocaust survivor, Marcel Levy, now 90, whom he set free from a concentration camp seven decades ago — and the emotional moment was captured on camera.

Shafner is back in the U.S. after a stirring eight-day trip to Israel and Poland last week. He was honored at a Holocaust remembrance ceremony for his hand, as a young troop, in helping to liberate some 30,000 prisoners from the Dachau Concentration Camp in southern Germany in 1945.

A video of their face-to-face reunion on May 10 at an Israeli military base shows the moment when the two came together. In the video, Shafner and Levy embrace each other with hugs, kisses and tears, as family and friends look on.

“Everything I have today, all of my children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, is due to you, Sid,” Levy told Shafner.

Thank you for your service, Mr. Shafner.
