SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Honor Flight Savannah will be taking 23 local military veterans to our Nation’s Capital on Friday, April 21.

Honor Flight offers World War II, Korean War, and Vietnam War veterans a free trip to Washington, D.C. to visit the various war memorials built and dedicated to honor their service and sacrifices in past wars.  Veterans will also view the Changing of Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington Cemetery.

Veterans travel by charter bus, and the transportation, meals and lodging is free to participating veterans. The buses will leave Friday morning from the air terminal at Hunter Army Airfield. The public is invited to arrive at 8 a.m. to give the veterans a great send-off as they begin their trip. If you do plan on attending, you are asked to bring a valid photo ID to get in the Hunter gate.

To date, Honor Flight Savannah has honored 4044 veterans from Coastal Georgia and South Carolina’s Low Country in this endeavor.
