HEBRON, KY (FOX19) -
Seventy-two Tri-State veterans and their escorts took part in an Honor Flight from Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) on Tuesday, destined for Washington D.C. to see memorials and participate in ceremonies that honor their service to their country.
Honor Flight Tri-State is a non-profit organization whose sole mission is to fly World War II and Korean War veterans to their memorials in Washington, D.C. at no cost. All veterans on the flight were from the Greater Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky and South Eastern Indiana area.
Tuesday's flight included visits to the World War II memorial, Korean War memorial, Vietnam War memorial, Iwo Jima, and the US Air Force memorial and other Washington D.C. sights.
"Our goal is to honor as many veterans as we can before it is too late," said Cheryl Popp, director of Honor Flight Tri-State.
The flight was preceded by bag pipes from the Hamilton County Sheriff's Department, an Honor Guard ceremony and other special remarks in the area near the west end of the security checkpoint.
"We are honored to play a part in an event that recognizes true national heroes who bravely served their country," said Candace McGraw, CVG CEO.
