800 Veterans and eleven hubs

And so if you were wondering where I’ve been in the past few weeks, I’ve been working on my latest book on DC and saving my energy up for today when 800 veterans plus guardians…a total of probably 1200 plus assorted military personnel, motorcycle police and riding groups, mounted police, guardians, school kids and relatives all gathered at the World War II Memorial today.  It wasn’t quite Woodstock but it was close and as Honor Flight has become more well known, the number of folks who come out to greet the veterans is larger and today’s beautiful weather brought out EVERYONE.

I am looking forward to the rest of the Honor Flight season as the book is on deadline.  The photos from today are at the Honor Flight Photo website.  As you can see from the contact sheet below, it was a great day for photography, family and celebration of our heroes.  It was just announced that there will be a plaque honoring Senator Dole put on the Memorial.  To say that it’s well deserved is to understate the case.

Honor flight is featured in the new Jewel of the Mall: World War II Memorial book.

World War II Memorial, Honor Flight
