GRAND FORKS -- Northern Valley Honor Flight Airwaves was a sentimental journey through the music of the 1940s, and it was wonderful.

Thank you to all the performers and technicians who generously donated their precious time and talents. Thank you to master of ceremonies John French, whose fine deep baritone set the perfect pitch for radio days of yore. Thank you to Nancy O'Leary, who developed the Airwaves video, and to Bruce Cummings of KULR-TV in Billings, Mont., for graciously donating video production time.

Thank you to the Airwaves Band, whose swing stylings under the direction of Bruce Morlock were the "cat's pajamas." And a special thank you to Loren Liepold for producing and directing a great show.

We also thank the community and the Grand Forks media for supporting Airwaves and our other fundraising efforts to honor our World War II veterans by taking them to visit the national World War II Monument in Washington.
