Washington, D.C. – Congressman Frank Lucas (R-Okla.) today met with a group of Oklahoma veterans traveling to Washington as part of the Oklahoma Honor Flights Program. The organization works with volunteers to help ensure World War II veterans can visit the memorials dedicated to their service.

        

“I am truly grateful for this unique opportunity to welcome our veterans on their trip to our nation’s capital,” said Congressman Lucas. “These monuments are a symbol of the sacrifice and service of these individuals. It was an incredible moment to share with them.”

The Oklahoma Honor Flights program has helped transport veterans to Washington since 2009. All travel costs are covered through private donations. Oklahoma Honor Flights has taken roughly 2,000 veterans on 21 flights since the program’s inception.
