Veterans return from Honor Flight

Veterans return from Honor Flight

By Sarah Lind. CREATED Nov 3, 2013

MILWAUKEE – Several Wisconsin Veterans experienced the flight of a lifetime this weekend. 

Two hundred veterans from the World War II and Korean War eras departed from Mitchell International Airport Saturday morning.

The group spent the day in Washington, DC visiting the memorials which were built in their honor. They returned home later that same day to a homecoming celebration. 

This flight marked the 20th Honor flight for veterans in Wisconsin. It was also the first time more Korean War veterans made the trip than World War II veterans.
