On Saturday, U.S. Sen. Al Franken met with a group of Minnesota veterans to thank the group for their service to our country. The group traveled to Washington with the Honor Flight Northland, a non-profit organization that honors veterans from Minnesota by bringing them to Washington, D.C. to visit a number of war memorials.

The veterans—who served in World War II, Korea, and Vietnam were welcomed by Sen. Franken at Reagan National Airport in Washington, D.C.

“Minnesota’s veterans put their lives on the line to protect our freedom and they deserve the respect and gratitude of every American,” said Sen. Franken. “It was an honor to meet with this group of Minnesota veterans and to be able to thank them for their service. I’m thrilled that they were able to visit our nation’s capital to see the war memorials that honor the service and the sacrifices of our nation’s fallen heroes.”
