Honors Flights to resume with 2 trips in October

Local News

WASHINGTON (WANE) — Honor Flight, which takes veterans to Washington to visit memorials at no cost to them, will resume flights this fall.

Honor Flight suspended all flights to D.C. last year amid the coronavirus outbreak. Last month, the Honor Flight Network cleared the flights to resume.

Now, they’re booked.

“It’s great. I just can’t wait to get on the flight and get to Washington, DC. But most of all, it’ll be with other guys, other vets. And that’s something that you miss as you get older, the camaraderie that you had with your shipmates In my case, and all of the guys,” said Fred Spencer, Cold War Veteran, served 1959-1965.

Honor Flight Northeast Indiana will have flights Oct. 6 and Oct. 27. The flights are the postponed flights from spring 2020.
