This Wednesday, I'm hoping to see the Park Police Escorts as I pull up to the Iwo Jima Memorial. They've been short on personnel this year but we are all hoping. They save Honor Flights two hours minimum a day, make parking easier and the sight of five buses and a couple of escorts has become familiar to DC residents who often stop what they are doing and wave and salute. It's become one of DC's signature scenes and a favorite activity of the veterans. Who doesn't like being escorted through traffic?
