MARION -- The third Veterans Honor Flight of Southern Illinois will take off from Veterans Memorial Airport in Marion on Tuesday, April 24. People are invited to be there for the send off and the welcome back celebration.

The flight leaves around 6:30 a.m. on April 24. The return celebration starts at 5 p.m. and will continue until every veteran and guardian are off the plane. News 3's Kevin Hunsperger and video journalist Andy Shofstall will be in Washington, D.C. providing reports on local veterans visiting the monuments built in their honor.

The group is also raising money for future flights. On May 3, there's a golf scramble at Keller's Crossing at Stone Creek in Makanda. Golfers and sponsors are still needed. You can learn more about Veterans Honor Flight of Southern Illinois here
