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.
