( Back of Postcard printed for AirVenture 2013)

“As poet guides of infinite space, we have pledged an oath to safeguard the cargo of cherished hopes entrusted to us as shepherd’s of the Air Mails.

We alone have flown below the clouds and embraced the landscapes we have crossed as our treasured friends. Though we leave our brothers here tonight to fight for our homes, as we accept as our duty, we will never again be the pilots of destruction.  Those of us that have not fallen vow to rendevous, under the beacon on the island, to continue our Crusades of Noble Adventures.  So that we may seek our successors and ensure our line to continue – to this we commit our lives .

For we are the Knights of the Air.  We are the Gardeners of Men.”
