Senator John Walsh joined 77 World War II veterans on the National Mall who participated in the final World War II Big Sky Honor Flight. Sen. Tester, a longtime member of the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee, was also in attendance.

Walsh, who is the Honorary Chair of the Big Sky Honor flight, celebrated the service of Montana’s World War II veterans at the memorial that was built in their honor.

“We can’t thank our World War II veterans enough for their selfless service on behalf of our country,” said Walsh.  “The Big Sky Honor Flight accomplished its mission to recognize Montana’s veterans for their sacrifices and pay tribute to their service.  These flights for members of the Greatest Generation were made possibly by the generosity of Montanans and the hard work of the Big Sky Honor Flight Committee, and I thank them for their dedication.”

The Big Sky Honor Flight raised $1.45 million for nine flights from Billings, Montana to Washington D.C.  In total, 755 veterans visited the World War II Memorial.  The veterans also visited Arlington National Cemetery, Iwo Jima Memorial, and attended a banquet in their honor.

Currently, plans are in place to continue the Big Sky Honor Flight program for Korean War Veterans.
