McCarthy Welcomes Kern County Honor Flight to U.S. Capitol
Today I had the distinct pleasure of welcoming Honor Flight Kern County to the United States Capitol. The group consisted of 35 World War II, Vietnam War, and Korean War veterans and their escorts.
Honor Flights are just one small way we can thank our heroes for their service and commitment to protecting our freedoms. Our veterans have noble values they can bestow upon us – lessons of valor, love of country, and unrelenting tenacity – and I was humbled to show them around the Capitol this morning. It was incredible to share stories behind some of the historic events that have taken place in this building that helped shape the very landscape of our nation they fought to defend.
