The academic objectives of the MEG proposal were met and exceeded. Specifically, students were able to serve as individual guardians for a WWII or Korea War Veteran on an Honor Flight to Washington DC to allow those Veterans to visit those sites that are in place to honor their service to our country. For most of the 25 Veterans that were sponsored by BYU College of Nursing, this was their last visit to these sites before they pass on. Examples of these sites were WWII Memorial, Korea War Memorial, Vietnam War Memorial, Navy Memorial, Air Force Memorial, Marine / Iwo Jima Memorial, Arlington National Cemetery, Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, etc. These Veterans were honored at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, as well as at the WWII Memorial, where Taps was played in the ceremony honoring them. In addition, an Honors Banquet was held to honor each individual Veteran in attendance and their service.
