Washington, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) was on hand today to greet World War II veterans from Arizona at the National WWII Memorial in Washington, D.C. The veterans’ trip was sponsored by the Honor Flight Network, a national, non-profit organization dedicated to transporting veterans to Washington, D.C. to visit memorials dedicated to their service and sacrifices.
HD video footage of the event available for broadcast can be found on Flake’s YouTube page.

“Meeting the veterans and listening to their stories today at the monument memorializing their service was a profoundly moving experience,” said Flake. “I was honored to be able to pay tribute to their courage. I could not be prouder to be an Arizonan.”
