Washington, DC – Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) today welcomed veterans and their families from Honor Flight Northern Colorado to the World War II Memorial in Washington, DC. This year marks the 10th anniversary of Honor Flight Northern Colorado bringing veterans to the nation’s capital.

 

“It was an incredible honor to meet our veterans at the World War II memorial in our nation’s capital,” said Gardner. “I met with Vietnam, Korea and even a few World War II veterans and thanked them for their service to our country. Our veterans are the very best America has to offer and we owe them for fighting for the freedoms we enjoy every day.”

 

According to Honor Flight Northern Colorado, they will have brought nearly 3,000 veterans in their 10 years of operation, including 1,200 World War II veterans to Washington, DC to honor the heroic commitment they have made to this country.
