Sen. Marshall Visits With Kansas Honor Flight Veterans at WWII Memorial
(Washington, D.C., October 7, 2021) – Today, U.S. Senator Roger Marshall, M.D. joined dozens of Kansas veterans at the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. The veterans are in town as part of the Kansas Honor Flight Organization, which brings veterans to our nation’s capital – at no cost to them – to visit the memorials dedicated to honoring their service.

Following the visit, Senator Marshall issued this statement:“As a veteran myself, one of my favorite things to do in D.C. is to greet Kansas veterans coming here on the Honor Flight and to listen to their stories. It is their stories that serve as valuable reminders of the heroism, service, and sacrifice that exemplify and highlight what it means to be an American. Thank you to each of the veterans who were in attendance today, and to all who have served our country, for your bravery and honor defending our nation. And, thank you to all of the people that take their time and money to make this visit possible for all of our great veterans,” said Senator Marshall.
