WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), a U.S. Army veteran and senior member of the Senate Armed Services Committee (SASC), today welcomed 25 Oklahoma veterans to Washington, D.C. as part of the Oklahoma Honor Flight program. Of the veterans in attendance, 23 served during World War II and two served in the Korean War.
“One of the most moving experiences I’ve had as a Member of Congress is welcoming Oklahoma's veterans who travel to visit their monuments in the nation’s capital,” said Inhofe. “These men and women fought for our freedom and represent the greatest generation in our country’s history. Listening to their stories and talking to them about their time in service is a reminder that we as a nation must ensure their sacrifices will forever be remembered and honored.”
