About the Book

Andrew is on a mission! He heard about something called the Honor Flight at school. That’s a program that honors World War II veterans with a trip to Washington, D.C. On that tour, they get to see the memorials built for them. Problem is – Andrew’s great-grandpa doesn’t want to go. He doesn’t want to even talk about how he helped save the world. Andrew has a plan. Will learning how to give a superduper salute help change Grandpa’s mind and help him get the hero’s welcome he deserves?

Inspired by a true story, join us as we celebrate our veterans with Saluting Grandpa.
