Honor Flight Veterans Tour Washington DC

By Stephani Ruiz. CREATED Mar 25, 2014

Washington, DC -- Hundreds of local Korean War Veterans are finally getting a chance to see the memorial dedicated to them.

The honor flight came close to being grounded, but thanks to public donations the war heroes are in Washington D.C.

KMTV Action 3 News Reporter Kim Foley went along for the trip Tuesday. She said everyone is having a great time and the trip is going smoothly. The only complaint is the cold weather.

The veterans fly back home Tuesday night. Hyvee is planning a homecoming event at Eppley Airfield to make their return memorable. You're invited to join the crowd at the airport around 10 p.m.
