Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) paid tribute on Tuesday, April 17, to veterans from Eastern Iowa who were visiting the memorials dedicated to their service and sacrifice, including the World War II, Vietnam and Korean War Memorials, as well as the Arlington National Cemetery, as part of the Honor Flight Program. More than 100 veterans from towns across Eastern Iowa were in attendance.

"The Honor Flight program gives veterans and their families the opportunity to come together in fellowship, see their memorial and pay respect to their fellow brothers and sisters in Arms," Grassley said. "It was an honor to spend time with these courageous Americans."

Grassley, along with Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), recently demanded answers from the Department of Veterans Affairs regarding its national review of all VA health care provider licenses in order to certify that no doctors have been hired illegally.
