Geocache Description:


Seems like I could publish a cache in this series once a week if I wanted to. I'm bringing this one back to highlight the WWII Soldiers and Sailor monument memorializing WWII vets at the cache coordinates. Too often we dwell on the sacrifices of our heroes only after they've leave this earth. I wanted instead to do something that would get us thinking about those vets who are still with us with a relatively simple puzzle that highlights some area veterans and their supporters and a recent trip to see the many war memorials in DC.

You'll need to download this article about a recent Honor Flight trip to find all of the answers to the questions below.

On April 17th the author of the article took a trip with HG WWII veterans as a guardian for which she received F hours of training. After touring the WWII war memorial, the vets were given a box lunch and toured DC for A hours. One of the vets, Jim, enlisted I(+2) times and participated in 8 campaigns. During his first term of service as a baker on the USS Stevenson with the rank of Petty Officer J(+3) Class, he was involved in ED missions in the Admiralty Islands. At the last stop on the tour, the veterans saw a memorial with D(+2) contrails which extended above FBC feet.

Cache cords will bring you to the Soldiers and Sailors bridge memorial plaque where you can first reflect on the information you've gathered and start your search. N44°AB.CDE W88°FG.HIJ
