Visiting Washington D.C. on Tuesday was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that I will never forget. Emotions ran high all day, and in between rushing around, trying to interview everybody I could talk to and taking as many pictures as humanly possible, I took a minute while walking down the steps of the Lincoln Memorial to reflect on the privilege of going on this flight. Accompanying these veterans, many of whom had never seen the monuments to the wars they fought in, who spent the day being thanked for their service and saluted by total strangers, was an honor and a gift. Memorializing their memories in text and photos was a tremendous opportunity for me, and I hope that I've done an acceptable job.
