Show synopsis Andrew's great-grandfather fought in World War II, something Andrew finds especially extraordinary. When he learns about a special program called the Honor Flight that allows World War II veterans to take a trip to Washington, D.C. to visit the memorials dedicated to them, Andrew wants nothing more than for his great-grandfather to participate. But his great-grandfather refuses to go. He does not want to remember his time in the war; he does not even want to talk about all he did for his country. Young Andrew becomes determined to inspire him to celebrate his bravery, dedication, and strength. It does not take long for Andrew to think of an idea that will make Grandpa see just how special he is: he will learn how to execute the perfect salute! With a special foreword by Tom Brokaw, this is the ideal book for teaching children about the importance of family, courage, patriotism, and, most of all, honor. Readers of all ages will appreciate and enjoy this endearing, timeless tale.
