Nurses Accompany Veterans on Honor Flight

Denver, CO

Two nurses from St. Anthony Central Hospital accompanied 68 World War II veterans on an Honor Flight to Washington, D.C. The trip was organized by Rocky Mountain Honor Flight, a nonprofit organization that honors veterans by transporting them to Washington, D.C., to visit and reflect at the memorials and monuments there. Julie Benz, RN, and Cindi Vais, RN, worked on the effort for months before the trip, helping to screen the veterans for health issues and plan for their health care needs while traveling.
