Year’s Third Kansas Honor Flight Headed To DC

KSAL StaffMay 14, 2014

The year’s third Kansas Honor Flight is headed to Washington, D.C., to give veterans a chance to visit memorials to their wars and others.

The flight was scheduled to leave Wichita on Wednesday carrying four World War II veterans and 23 Korean War vets, along with their guardians, to the nation’s capital.

The trip is organized by Kansas Honor Flight Inc., whose mission is to transport veterans to Washington to visit the memorials at no cost to them. World War II veterans have priority, with Korea and Vietnam vets following in that order.

Among the memorials on the itinerary are the World War II Memorial, Korean Memorial, Vietnam Memorial Wall, Lincoln Memorial and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
