On the 69th anniversary of D-Day, Ford sponsored an Honor Flight for 26 World War II veterans and their guardians to visit the National World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. The 26 trip members from Kentucky were greeted at the National World War II Memorial by Ford employees. Members of Congress were also invited to attend.
The Honor Flight veterans, who are now in their late eighties and nineties, also visited the Korean War Veterans Memorial and the Iwo Jim Memorial. The Bluegrass Chapter of the Honor Flight Network organized the trip for the veterans.
Al Lindsey, the manager of material planning and logistics at Ford’s Louisville Assembly Plant said, “As a veteran myself, it is an honor and privilege to travel to Washington, D.C., alongside these brave Americans who served our country nearly 70 years ago. I hope this visit serves as a demonstration of the lasting impact of – and appreciation for – their historic sacrifice.”
This example of Ford’s continued dedication to our veterans makes Cambridge Classic Ford so proud to be a part of the family. Other organizations would do well to follow Ford’s example of honoring and supporting our veterans.
