SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Hundreds welcomed veterans home Sunday from their honor flight to the nation's capital where they visited war memorials, Arlington National Cemetery and other landmarks.
Sixty-four veterans from WWII and the Korean War flew out Friday.
The Honor Flights are free for veterans. Each trip costs $240,000 and relies on donations.
Joining the veterans are escorts who will spend the weekend supporting the veterans, guiding them and making sure everything goes smoothly.
The veterans include Purple Heart recipients, a former German Prisoner of War, a veteran who served on D-day, according to the non-profit. They have a waiting list of more than 100 veterans who want to make the trip.
