Dozens of veterans embarked on a journey to see their war memorials in our nation's capitol on Tuesday, marking the fourth flight of the Flag City Honor Flight.
The Findlay-based hub of the National Honor Flight Network planned the day for 77 veterans from the Findlay-area.
Veterans on board Tuesday's flight from Toledo Express Airport included 31 from World War II, 45 from the Korean War, and one from the Vietnam War. 101-year-old Norval Knouse is also on board. He is the oldest WWII veteran to have ever flown with the FCHF.
The one-day trip will have the group flying in to Baltimore-Washington International Airport, then travelling by bus to the WWII, Korean, and Vietnam war memorials. They'll then watch the Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery before returning home Tuesday evening.
Veterans pay nothing to visit their war memorials on Honor Flight. The trip is made possible through the generous donations of individuals and local businesses.
