DAYTON — 110 World War II, Korean, and Vietnam veterans will be able to see the memorials built in their honor thanks to Honor Flight Dayton sponsors.
The public can attend the event at the Dayton International Airport starting at 8:00 p.m. to welcome these men and women.
“The Dayton International Airport is proud to be the host airport and work with Honor Flight of Dayton in this great opportunity to honor our veterans,” said Terrence Slaybaugh, Director of Aviation for the City of Dayton.
The veterans boarded their first plane at 6:30 a.m. this morning to make their way to Washington D.C. to visit numerous memorial sites.
When the veterans arrive back at the Dayton Airport, a Military Guard of about 200 USAF personnel will welcome them by forming a symbolic Honor March to accompany them from the arrival gate to the Honor Corridor.
