Veterans Honor Flight seeks more vets

Posted: Updated:

MARION -- Organizers of Veterans Honor Flight of Southern Illinois are working to make more veterans and volunteers aware of the program.

Two flights have now taken off from Veterans Airport in Marion, taking area vets to Washington, D.C. to see memorials which honor their service.

News 3's Mark Kiesling said he had the privilege to go on the inaugural flight with his father, saying it was the experience of a lifetime for both of them.

Interested veterans and volunteers can attend an informational meeting next Wednesday, Jan. 17, at Heritage Woods of Benton.

That event starts at 2:00 p.m.
