WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Jackie Walorski (IN-02) today greeted veterans arriving at Reagan National Airport on a distinct flight. Honor Flight Tri-State brought 71 World War II and Korean Veterans from Indiana, Ohio, and Kentucky to see the memorials dedicated to their service and sacrifice in our nation’s capital.
“Greeting our nation’s war heroes during their incredible journey to see historic memorials designed and built in their honor is truly moving,” said Walorski, a member of the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee. “I appreciate the opportunity to thank each veteran for their brave service to our nation on this important day.”
The trip is organized at no cost to the veterans, including transportation and meals for a one day visit to Washington, D.C. with a guardian, offering a special opportunity for many to experience their memorials for the first time. During the 2012 season, Honor Flight Tri-State flew 365 World War II and Korean Veterans to our nation’s capital.
