LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A large group of Kentucky and Southern Indiana veterans will experience a full day of reflection in Washington D.C. Honor Flight Bluegrass takes off May 28 with 21 veterans from WWII, 60 from the Korean War and two from Vietnam.
From Arlington National Cemetery to the WWII Memorial, the veterans will see it all.
The flight is a way to honor their service and sacrifices made for our country.
Ernie Micka, a 101-year-old WWII veteran who took the trip last year, called it an experience of a lifetime.
"Everyone was well taken care of and it was a wonderful thing because, not only did I get to see my memorial again, but I got to see all the others,” Micka said.
Honor Flight Bluegrass hopes the public can join in the celebration to welcome the veterans home after their journey. The welcome ceremony is at the Louisville Muhammad Ali International Airport at 9:30 p.m. May 28.
