Seventy-eight veterans, including two from the Korean War, are flying to Washington D.C. today as part of the Upper Peninsula Honor Fight to see the memorials dedicated for their service in the Korean and Vietnam Wars.
The veterans and guardians met last night and gathered at a hanger at the Delta County Airport early this morning to get ready to take off.
Organizer Scott Knauf says the will arrive back at 8:30 tonight. The hanger opens at 7 p.m. He hopes the community will show up to welcome them home — a welcome they did not receive when they returned from war.
