Saluting Puget Sound Honor Flights

by Greg Asimakoupoulos

Posted: November 9, 2019

Pledging allegiance to our veterans…

(L) (R)

On Honor Flights old veterans find
a trove of memories left behind
reminding them of freedom's cost
and friends who paid the price.

It's a pilgrimage to holy ground,
a sacred trip from Puget Sound
to where our heroes rest in peace
in Washington D.C.

Each veteran and his guardian
retrace rich memories one by one
and contemplate the part Vets played
defending liberty.
