Honor Flight vets get a pink smooch as they arrive into D.C.

When veterans on the 41st Honor Flight arrived to Washington Dulles International Airport a local named Laura Valentine was the first to greet them.

Laura's specialty? Bright pink lipstick!

Every vet was adorned with her mark, and wore it proudly.
