WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Todd Young (R-Ind.) welcomed Hoosier veterans to Washington, D.C. this week as part of Honor Flight Northeast Indiana. Senator Young greeted the group of roughly 85 veterans at the World War II Memorial.
“It was a privilege to greet an Honor Flight from Northeast Indiana today in Washington. The service and stories of these Hoosier veterans is truly inspiring, and we are grateful for each of them,”said Senator Young.
Honor Flight Network is a non-profit organization created to honor America’s veterans for their sacrifices. They transport veterans to Washington, D.C. to visit and reflect at their memorials, at no cost to the veterans. Top priority is given to the senior veterans – World War II survivors, along with those other veterans who may be terminally ill.
“The service and stories of these Hoosier veterans is truly inspiring, and we are grateful for each of them,” – Sen. Young.
Honor Flight Northeast Indiana was founded in 2008, and has conducted over 30 Flights. They now arrange four flights per year, with approximately 85 veterans on each flight. In 2019, Senator Young was able to greet this same Honor Flight at the World War II Memorial and FDR Memorial.
