Flag

A group of Northwest Ohio veterans recently traveled to Washington, D.C. as part of the Honor Flight program. More than 150 veterans flew from Northwest Ohio to visit the World War II, Vietnam, Iwo Jima, and Korean War memorials and Arlington National Ceremony. U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown met with the veterans near the World War II memorial on the National Mall.

“Ohio’s warriors have earned the respect of a grateful nation. The Honor Flight Network program helps bring our veterans to visit their memorials—memorials built in honor of their service and sacrifice,” Sen. Brown said. “As a member of the Veterans Affairs Committee, it is an honor to fight to ensure that these veterans have access to the resources needed to heal, recover, and continue to enrich the Ohio communities that they live in today.”
