WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) visited World War II veterans from Tulsa, Oklahoma at the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. Veterans and their families visited the nation’s capital on the fourth Oklahoma Honor Flight. Since the memorial opened in 2004, the Honor Flights have enabled World War II veterans from across the nation to see the memorial.
Inhofe said, “It is an honor to meet these World War II veterans from the Tulsa area and welcome them to their monument. Their selfless sacrifice has shaped our nation’s future and ensured our freedom. I am grateful for their service, and I appreciate the Honor Flights for providing these veterans with the opportunity to travel to Washington, D.C. May we never forget their courage and sacrifices.”
