WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today welcomed World War II, Korea and Vietnam Veterans from Amarillo who traveled to Washington, D.C. for the Texas Panhandle Honor Flight. 

Still photos and video of the visit may be viewed here.

“It’s one of the really wonderful privileges of serving in the Senate is having the opportunity to welcome Honor Flights and to have veterans coming from Texas to visit the memorial and to say thank you,” Sen. Cruz said. “We’ve got veterans from World War II, we’ve got veterans from Vietnam, we’ve got veterans from Korea, all from the Panhandle coming up here. And it’s just a privilege to say to each and every one of them that the state of Texas is grateful for your service, and the whole country is grateful for your service. […] They transformed the world and stood up and confronted evil. Our veterans have done that at every stage. From those who fought in World War I and World War II to those who are active duty right now and everywhere in between. And there’s no state in the union like Texas when it comes to supporting our active duty military and supporting the 1.7 million veterans we have in Texas. We love our veterans. We cherish them. We are proud to live with heroes in our midst: heroes as our next door neighbors, heroes in the pew next to us, heroes who are really part of the fabric of who we are as Texans.”
