Kentucky war veterans to fly to Washington on Saturday; public invited to welcome them back

A total of 68 Kentucky war veterans are scheduled to make this year's Honor Flight, a 16-hour trip Saturday to Washington, D.C., to visit military memorials.

The trip will include veterans of World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War.

This is the fifth year that Kentucky's Touchstone Energy Cooperatives are partnering with the Bluegrass chapter of the Honor Flight Network to sponsor the trip.

People who want to welcome the veterans back should arrive at Blue Grass Airport by 8:30 p.m. Saturday. Additional parking will be available.
