Retired flight attendant pushes beverage cart through Herndon in memory of 9/11

Town of Herndon police officers gathered on the Washington & Old Dominion Trail Wednesday to celebrate a peculiar site: a retired flight attendant pushing a beverage cart.

“It was an honor to welcome Paul “Paulie” Veneto to the Herndon as he continues Paulie’s Push,” the Herndon Police Department wrote.

Paul “Paulie” Veneto — a former flight attendant whose colleagues were killed on Sept. 11 — trekked through the Town of Herndon this week in memory of the victims of that fateful day.

FFXnow’s sister site ARLnow previously reported that Veneto’s shift on Flight 175 had ended, sending a new crew into the skies on its normal route from Los Angeles to Boston. They were all killed.

Veneto is now pushing an airplane beverage cart 30 miles from Dulles International Airport to the Pentagon — tracing the path of American Airlines Flight 77 that crashed into the Pentagon and killed 184 people.

He began his journey on Sept. 8. He hopes to wrap up on Saturday, the 21st anniversary of 9/11.

Last year, he embarked on a lengthier journey — pushing a beverage cart across 230 miles from Boston Logan International Airport to Ground Zero in New York.
