WWII Honor Flight

Honor is a hard term to describe.  It doesn’t have a color or weight or shape.  If someone were to ask me what honor looked like, I’d probably struggle with what to say.

But something happened on May 23, 2012 at 9:31 a.m. at Gate 38 of Reagan National Airport that might change that.  A flash mob of sorts broke out. But not like you’ve seen on YouTube with highly choreographed dance numbers or people singing a song in unison.  In fact, virtually all of the participants of this “flash mob” didn’t know they would be participating until moments before it happened.
.
A US Airways gate attendant announced that an Honor Flight of World War II veterans for a Memorial celebration at the Capitol would be arriving momentarily and encouraged anyone passing by to help greet them.

Now, I know what honor looks like.
