The Cherokee Nation’s Sixth Annual Cherokee Warrior Flight departs today for Washington, D.C., with 10 veterans who served during the Korean War or Vietnam wars.

Each year the Cherokee Nation funds the flight for Cherokee veterans to see the national war memorials erected in their honor at the nation’s capital.

On Sept. 9 through Sept. 11, veterans will tour the White House, Smithsonian’s Museum of the American Indian and the U.S. Capitol, and visit the Pentagon 9/11 memorial, among many other sites.

The Cherokee Nation has taken 50 Cherokee veterans on the Cherokee Warrior Flight over the past six years.

“I’m proud that we are part of a Nation that has the heart and the gratitude for the veterans and the sacrifices they’ve made through the years,” said Secretary of Veterans Affairs S. Joe Crittenden, a U.S. Navy veteran of the Vietnam War. “We can say thank you and honor them by showing them the testimonies of their sacrifice.”

On Sunday, a dinner was held at Cherokee Hotel and Casino West Siloam Springs to present the warriors with flight vests and caps and wish them safe travels.
