Final North Carolina Flight of Honor

Statement

I was proud to receive the last Triangle Flight of Honor from North Carolina on Wednesday morning. That means that every World War Two veteran - regardless of where they live in our state - who expressed an interest in coming to D.C. to see the memorial erected in honor of their sacrifice has now been flown to Washington. These men and women made enormous sacrifices for the good of our country, and it is thanks to them that I have the privilege to serve in the United States Senate today. Many brave men and women continue to make those sacrifices today, and I saw many of them on Wednesday night when I kicked off the Wounded Warrior bike ride. Future generations will look at the sacrifices made by these courageous citizens today, and our liberties and our freedoms will be in tact because of their efforts.
