Rep. Anielski Honors Local Veterans on Flight to D.C.
Washington D.C. —State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Independence) recently presented a House commendation to 25 area veterans who participated in the Honor Flight Cleveland program.
Rep. Anielski volunteered as a guardian on Honor Flight Cleveland, which takes veterans from around the Cleveland area to Washington D.C. for a day to see monuments and other attractions. Each veteran has a guardian that accompanies them throughout the day and Rep Anielski accompanied Leonard Senkfor, an 86 year old Navy Veteran, from Pepper Pike throughout the day.
“I am honored to have had the opportunity to get to accompany Len and the twenty four other brave veterans that served our country, to visit all the monuments in our nations capital,” Rep Anielski said.
Honor Flight Cleveland is a non-profit organization and has been flying veterans to Washington DC since 2007.
