WASHINGTON (News4Utah) – Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) welcomed a group of Utah veterans to Washington Friday.

The group, consisting of veterans of World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War, came to Washington as part of the Utah Honor Flight.

It’s a program that transports veterans to Washington to visit the memorials dedicated to honor their service and sacrifices.

“I just love seeing these veterans. They’re my heroes. My inspiration. And they remind me of the importance of my job as their representative. We can never do enough to honor their service and their sacrifices, but we can sure try,” said Hatch.
