Washington, D.C- Over a hundred veterans from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula flew to Washington, D.C. today from Escanaba to visit the World War II Memorial and other sites in Washington, D.C. Upon arrival, they were greeted by their Congressman, Dr. Dan Benishek.
“These veterans put their lives on the line when our country needed them most. It is always moving to see them visit for the first time the monuments that were created in their honor,” said Dr. Benishek. “It is great that we can provide this opportunity to those who have served as a small way of saying ‘thank you.”
