I was able to locate Mr. Purdy's wing man, John, who we managed to get to Columbia, MO recently! The two World War II Marine Pilots had a chance of a lifetime to see each other again after nearly 70 years!

Honor Everywhere 360 is a Virtual Reality experience for Veterans not able to physically travel to see their memorials in Washington, DC. We are losing our WWII Veterans at a rate of 500 a day nationwide and sadly, most will die before they have the chance to see their memorials. The Honor Everywhere experience is free and available via an app. All you need to view the experience is Google Cardboard and a newer smart phone.
For details on how to share the experience with a Veteran you know, please visit honoreverywhere.com . Honor Everywhere 360 is a collaboration with Central MO Honor Flight, Jaunt Studios, Google, Ghost Machine VR and Story Up Studios.
This is Honor Flight
