SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - While we can never repay our veterans for their sacrifice we can thank them every chance we get.

On Sunday over 1,000 people showed up at Lindbergh Field to welcome home Honor Flight veterans who've been in Washington D.C. visiting memorials dedicated to their service. 

The trip is completely free for the World War II and Korean War veterans, made possible by Honor Flight San Diego.

10News joined the veterans in D.C., sharing their stories throughout the weekend.

Honor Flight is still working to fund the next trip, each one costs $240,000.
