But with more and more veterans passing away due to their advanced age--an estimated thousand a day--the program is upping the number of trips to three a year. Reporter Lis Exon and photographer Ilea Shutler joined the June 6th Honor Flight--the 68th anniversary of D-Day.

Lilly Ledbetter 2

Featured in Top Stories

For nineteen years, Lilly Ledbetter worked at the Goodyear tire plant in Gadsden, Alabama. She rose to manager, received regular pay raises and earned a top performer award. Little did she know she was making 40% less than her male counterparts...until she received an anonymous note. That prompted a lawsuit and a ten year legal battle that culminated with a change in the law, giving women a better chance to receive equal pay for equal work. Lilly Ledbetter achieved a rare distinction: she fought back against the U.S. Supreme Court, and won, and saw the new law named in her honor. We recently spoke with Lilly Ledbetter about her battle for women's rights. Lilly Ledbetter’s story is detailed in her new memoir, "Grace and Grit: My Fight For Equal Pay and Fairness At Goodyear and Beyond."
