Texas Panhandle Veterans Honor Those Who Paid the Ultimate Price

Senator John Cornyn's Office

A group of Texas Panhandle veterans from World War II and the Korean War visited Washington, D.C. today and laid a memorial wreath at the World War II memorial with Senator John Cornyn.

“It is because of the sacrifices of these men and women, along with many others, that freedom overcame tyranny,” said Sen. Cornyn. “It was a privilege to visit with these Texas heroes and join them in honoring those who served.”

The veterans traveled to Washington through the Honor Flight Network, an organization with the mission of bringing veterans to Washington, D.C. to visit memorials.  Among them were the Short brothers—Cecil, James, Johnny, Wendell, and Dexter—who all served in the military during this time.  They are the largest group of brothers to fly to Washington on an Honor Flight.  This was the fifth Honor Flight from the Texas Panhandle.
