OSHKOSH, WI- The first flight to honor Vietnam Veterans tonight at EAA AirVenture. It was an emotional return home as 100 veterans traveled to Washington DC early this morning to visit the memorial built in their honor. Tonight they were recognized for their service and sacrifice.
Since 2009 three flights have departed from Wittman Airport during EAA AirVenture known as the Yellow Ribbon Honor Flight. Families say this is a special moment for Vietnam Vets because its the welcome home reception they deserved so many years ago.
