OMAHA, NE- More than 450 Korean War Veterans from Nebraska are now in the U.S. Capitol.
Today's Honor Flight to Washington, D.C. took off from Eppley Airfield just after 6:30 a.m.  Veterans on the flight were met with a round of applause when they deplaned in Washington just after 9 a.m.
The Veterans will get a chance to tour the Korean War Memorial, as well as other war memorials before flying back home tonight.   

Almost a half a million dollars was raised to make this trip possible.  Today's was the last Honor Flight that will take off from Omaha
