WASHINGTON, D.C. (September 28, 2013) -- Congresswoman Kaptur welcomed the largest-ever contingent of Honor Flight veterans to the World War II Memorial.

  More than 200 World War II veterans from New York and New England visited the popular memorial, which was built after Congresswoman Kaptur waged a long legislative battle.
Former Secretary of State Colin Powell attended the ceremony, which was organized by the daughter of a World War II veteran who was born in Toledo.
A major retail chain in the Northeast sponsored the three coordinated Honor Flights that brought the veterans to our nation's capital.
