Pledging allegiance to our Veterans
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
