🏛🇺🇸 These photos are a snapshot of what it’s like to escort 81 veterans around the nation’s capital to see memorials built in their honor and for friends whom they lost in battle... seeing their reverence and awe, hearing their stories of camaraderie, and capturing their raw emotions left its own mark deep within me, changing my life and perspective.
How could an average, peacetime-raised young woman like me understand something so complex, devastating, and wholly consuming as war? I cannot. Only through these men and women and their legacy can I hope I would be brave enough to do half of what they’ve done.🎖 Whatever chapter of Honor Flight is nearest to you, PLEASE consider volunteering, donating, serving as a guardian, or writing cards to show our vets how much we appreciate their service. ✈️ Honor Flight is a truly noble 100% volunteer organization that proves to our elderly veterans — sometimes even terminally ill — that their courageous patriotism was not in vain.
That this country remembers and will salute them til the end. 🇺🇸 #OneGoodThing #FeelGoodFriday #BattleToBecome #HonorFlight #vetshelpingvets #supportourveterans #troops #washingtondc #memorials #fallensoldiers #veteran #usveterans
