Ford Flying Out WWII Vets To Visit Memorial

Ford Motor Company is bringing together lawmakers and veterans at the World War II Memorial today. Ford is sponsoring a trip to Washington for 35 Detroit-area World War II veterans. The trip is organized by the Honor Flight Network, a group that works to bring veterans from around the country to Washington so they can see the memorials.

The Detroit-area vets, a few of whom worked for Ford after their service, will visit the memorial today with Michigan Sens. Debbie Stabenow (D) and Carl Levin (D) and Reps. Bill Huizenga (R) and Sandy Levin (D). World War II veteran and former Sen. Bob Dole, an advocate for the Honor Flight Network, brought the idea to Ford.

Ford says it will also be sponsoring a Honor Flight trip next summer for veterans from the Louisville area.
