    Maj. Gen. Mark MacCarley, deputy chief of staff, U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command, meets with Gordon Bates, a veteran of World War II, who served with the 503rd Parachute Regimental Combat Team, during the team's reunion breakfast the morning of Sept. 13 at the Sandston Holiday Inn, Richmond, Va. The reunion included a day trip to Washington, D.C. to visit the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and the World War II and Korean War Veterans Memorials. Members of the Honor flight Historic Triangle Virginia, a non-profit organization, were the veteran's escorts for the day. The goal of the organization is "To take every World War II and terminally ill veteran in the Hampton Roads and Richmond areas, that is able, and has not visited the World War II Memorial built in their honor, on a charter bus day trip to Washington D.C."
