Saturday, May 18th – Puget Sound Honor Flight
Puget Sound Honor Flight’s mission is to transport Western Washington war veterans to Washington D.C., to visit and reflect at memorials dedicated to honor their service and sacrifices.
In March of 2013 a varied group of Puget Sound area individuals, who realized they all had passion for the same cause, came together to create Puget Sound Honor Flight. With the help of the Corporate office, along with countless hours of support, advice, and guidance from the Inland Northwest Honor Flight (Spokane, WA) and Honor Flight Chicago, they put in motion an inaugural trip seven short months after starting up. With over 200 World War II veterans already on an existing list of Western Washington residents, Puget Sound Honor Flight is committed to giving these heroes their “One Last Mission”.
This weekend, the second of four 2019 flights took off with veterans and their guardians.
This week we hear from photographers Ted Alger and Margie Nicosia, plus board member Chris Provo share their passion to honor these men and women and telling their stories and sharing their experience during their trip to visit the monuments that honor their service.
