National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund Hosting Retired Police Officers and Military Vets in DC for Honor Flight

For Immediate Release
October 13, 2023

WHAT:

The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) will host a group of around 190 retired law enforcement officers and military vets for a visit to the National Law Enforcement Memorial as part of Honor Flight Tri-State’s annual Honor Flight. Honor Flight takes veterans who first served their country in the military, then came home to serve their communities as a police officer, free of charge to visit war memorials in Washington, D.C., and the Memorial will be the second stop on the tour. The group will be flying into D.C. from Cincinnati made up of mostly retired LEOs from throughout Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. The event will start with a color guard and national anthem followed by a brief ceremony to highlight the group.

WHO:

Honor Flight Tri-State

NLEOMF CEO Bill Alexander is expected to speak during this ceremony.

WHEN:

Wednesday October 17, 2023 | 12:30 p.m. Eastern

WHERE:

National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial
444 E Street, NW | Washington, DC 20001

WHY:

Honor Flight continues its mission of offering honor flights to veterans who otherwise would not be able to do so. For many of these individuals, a trip to Washington to see their memorials is not financially or physically possible by themselves. All war veterans aged 65 and older, who served either stateside or overseas, are eligible. This will be the fourth and final flight of the year that the organization puts on.
