Jim McLaughlin is the chairman of the board of the Honor Flight Network.

McLaughlin’s privately funded organization helps World War II veterans come to the nation’s capital to see the war memorial built in their honor. There, the quiet and humble warriors remember the history they lived through, with honor and emotion.

So far, over 81,000 World War II veterans have flown to Washington — at no cost to themselves — with the help of the Ohio-based Honor Flight Network.

McLaughlin recently spoke with The Daily Caller’s Ginni Thomas about the importance of the program, some special moments he has experienced at the memorial, how ordinary citizens can help out and much more.
