In 2019 the northern Colorado pen group I meet with made 165 pens for veterans going on the Honor Flight to Washington D.C. in September. We decided to do the same for the 2020 flight , by January of 2020 I had 10 pens made to give to the veterans on the flight. Covid hit and the 2020 flight was canceled. I had 10 pens made for veterans but no flight. I began taking a pen with me and randomly giving it to veterans I saw on the street. If someone had a Vietnam service cap on or a disabled veteran license plate on their car I introduced myself told them about the Honor Flight and gave them a pen. Today I handed out the last of the pens and must admit it felt good to see the look on their faces and the thank you's I got. I hope the flight comes back in 2021 and I am able to make pens for the veterans again. I was lucky enough to go on the 2019 flight and see the other veterans receive their pens.
