I had the opportunity to be a part of something very special in the Seattle area. By chance, I had received an email asking if I wanted to be a staff photographer for the Puget Sound Honor Flight Network, at the Sea-Tac International Airport. This organization is very important and it is always an honor to be surrounded by WWII and Korean War veterans, brave men and women who sacrificed themselves in the name of freedom. The events are very emotional and heart-felt. I had looked forward to capturing the memories for the veterans, their families and the Puget Sound Honor Flight Network. I will miss volunteering as a staff photographer and the wonderful friendships I had gained while residing in Washington State. To tell their story, this is what this amazing organization is all about:

 

"Honor Flight Network is a non-profit organization created solely to honor America’s veterans for all their sacrifices. We transport our heroes to Washington, D.C. to visit and reflect at their memorials. Top priority is given to the senior veterans – World War II survivors, along with those other veterans who may be terminally ill.

  • OUR MISSION : To transport our heroes on “One Last Mission” – a trip to Washington, D.C. to visit and reflect at the memorials built in their honor. This trip is free to the veteran, and made possible solely through individual donations and corporate support – NO Federal funds are allocated to this program. With the hard work and dedication of Honor Flight hubs throughout the U.S., and their communities, over 100,000 veterans have made this cathartic journey.

 

Since America felt it was important to build a memorial to honor the service and the ultimate sacrifice of her veterans, the Puget Sound Honor Flight believes it is equally important that they actually get to visit and experience their memorial."
