Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Diane Black (R-TN-06) welcomed veterans of World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War to Washington, D.C. as part of a visit with the Honor Flight of Middle Tennessee. The program provides area veterans with an expense-paid one-day trip to the nation’s capital to visit their respective memorials.
Congressman Black released the following statement:
“Coming from a family of veterans, it is a special privilege for me to welcome these Volunteer State heroes to the memorials built in their honor. The Honor Flight program is a truly worthwhile cause. By providing veterans with this trip to Washington D.C., it gives them the tribute they never asked for, but that they are certainly due. We are forever indebted to their extraordinary bravery. I am grateful to everyone at Middle Tennessee Honor Flight who work to make these trips possible, and for allowing me to be a small part of today’s visit.”
