LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – More than a hundred World War II veterans returned from their honor flight to Washington, D.C. on Thursday night. They had flown to see the World War II Memorial.
Some of them were seeing it for the first time and some of them were able to take in another experience.
Bluegrass Honor Flights is a non-profit group that flies veterans to D.C. free of charge. They make several trips a year. Last year, the group took 200 veterans to visit the memorial. They will take around 250 this year.
