Share Article

For the last few years, Cardinal Buses, an Indiana charter bus company has provided transportation to Washington D.C. for World War II veterans who wish to participate in Memorial Day activities. Cardinal Buses provided the buses and the drivers to transport the retired military personnel back to D.C.

This trip is something that we have taken every summer for the past couple years as a show of support for active and former military.

Cardinal Buses' dedication to honoring former and active military members has never been more evident than earlier this summer when they transported a group of World War TII veterans to Washington D.C. so they could participate in Memorial Day events in their honor.

The bus charter began in Goshen, Indiana, and ended in Washington D.C. with a brief stop in Pennsylvania where the veterans were able to pay their respects at the crash site of Flight 93 in Shanksville, PA. Once in D.C., the charter bus transported the retired veterans to and from various events, as well as stopping at historical landmarks for the group to enjoy.

The driver of the Indiana charter bus was George Conners, a retired U.S. Marine who took the honor of transporting these brave veterans very seriously. "It is an awesome honor," said Sheila Dodd, Director of Marketing at Cardinal Buses. "This trip is something that we have taken every summer for the past couple years as a show of support for active and former military."

Cardinal Buses also plays a big role in supporting military troops by transporting them to and from assignments. As a Department of Defense (D.O.D.) certified bus transportation company, Cardinal has maintained a rating of 1 (the highest rating available) for the past decade. This allows Cardinal the ability to transport military personnel on their charter buses from base to base around the United States. In fact, last week Cardinal Buses was involved in the transportation of more than 650 military troops from their base in Michigan to their deployment locations.
