Several dozen veterans from 55 Iowa counties will board a chartered jet for a trip to Washington D-C next week on the region's latest Honor Flight. Mary Lou Walker, who serves on the Brushy Creek Honor Flight committee, says they'll spend the day visiting memorials.

"The first ones that we'll go to will be Lincoln, Korean and Vietnam. Then they will arrive at the World War Two Monument. They will also visit Arlington National Cemetery, observe the changing of the guard, and then go for Iwo Jima Monument after that point. They also will visit the Air Force Memorial."

Walker says they'll have 163 people on the trip, including all of the veterans, medical personnel and support staff. She notes many of the veterans who will be on this flight served in one of two conflicts.

"We have Korean veterans, and people that are in between Korea and Vietnam, and Vietnam veterans," she says, "so we're talking anybody between June of 1950 through May 7th of 1975."

The charter will fly out of Fort Dodge Regional Airport early on the morning of May 22nd and return home late that night. The group's next Honor Flight is scheduled for September 18th.
