Rep. Yarmuth Joins Louisville Veterans at National WWII Memorial

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-3) joined five Louisville veterans and 21 others from throughout Kentucky at the National World War II Memorial to mark the 69th Anniversary of the Invasion of Normandy. The men, who served in World War II, traveled from Louisville as part of the Honor Flight Network, a nonprofit organization that transports veterans to Washington to visit and reflect upon the national memorials dedicated to their service and sacrifice.
