Honor Flight Police Escorts to be Reinstated

Missouri’s two US Senators say the National Park Service will reinstate police escorts for Honor Flights to Washington.

The Department of Interior has reversed an earlier decision, one that GOP Senators Roy Blunt and Josh Hawley criticized. Senator Blunt is pleased the Interior Department has reversed course, saying the police escorts ensure that Honor Flight travelers can get to their destinations safely and quickly. Senator Hawley agrees it’s the right decision.

Honor Flight of the Ozarks is set for its first flight since 2019 on Tuesday, May 10th.
