The anniversary of D-Day comes as several western Kentucky veterans start a special trip to our nation’s capital.
A group of veterans left Owensboro Monday afternoon for their Honor Flight.
The group started their trip by going to Louisville where they’ll then fly to Washington on Tuesday.
They will tour monuments and memorials.
Some are making the trip in memory of fallen friends.
The group is expected to return to Owensboro on Wednesday.
A welcome back ceremony is scheduled for 11:30 at Owensboro Christian Church.
