WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Rand Paul yesterday welcomed veterans from Kentucky traveling on their Honor Flight to Washington, D.C.
“Our nation owes a debt of gratitude to those who fought for our freedoms. I have always stood with Kentucky’s veterans and will continue to fight for them in the U.S. Senate. It is a special experience to visit with them as they see their memorials on a day that honors their service and commitment,” said Dr. Paul.
Honor Flight Bluegrass provided a free trip to our nation’s capital for 64 Kentucky veterans, as well as veterans from Indiana and Tennessee. The veterans toured multiple memorials, including the World War II Memorial, the Korean War Veterans Memorial, and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
